In a Thursday post on his Facebook, conservationist and founder of Sea Shepherd Paul Watson said an Interpol red alert issued by Costa Rica, which prompted his arrest in Germany in May 2012, has been dropped. A spokeswoman for Costa Rica's judicial system, which is handling Watson's case, denied Watson's statement, saying, "Everything remains the same."
Costa Rican officials are sticking to their initial storyline that the murder of Tico turtle conservationist Jairo Mora was carried out by a band of thieves and turtle poachers. Paul Watson thinks officials are lying. On Wednesday, Rainforest Radio's Jani Schulz will find out why.
