Description: Sea Shepherd Captain Sid Chakravarty speaking from the Southern Ocean about the arrest of the KUNLUN.
The KUNLUN fled from the Southern Ocean and was arrested this week (2016) in Senegal. Sea Shepherd worked with Senegal to stop poachers three years ago and Senegal was informed about the possibility of the KUNLUN trying to offload their illegal cargo in West Africa. Last year the KUNLUN was arrested in Thailand but bribed officials to escape. Last Year, 2015, Sea Shepherd stopped the THUNDER off Sao Tome after a 110 day pursuit ending with the scuttling of the THUNDER by her captain. Also last year Sea Shepherd assisted with the arrests of the two of the Bandit Six in Cape Verde. The search for the VIKING continues along with the search for the outlaw Japanese whaling fleet.
