Rocker and Photographer Bryan Adams was spotted on the telly back in June sporting a “Release Junichi and Toru” T-shirt, in support of two Greenpeace activists who were jailed for uncovering an illegal whale meat smuggling operation in Japan. After almost a month in prison, and massive international support, Japanese activists Junichi Sato and Toru Suzuki are out on bail.
The Japanese government sponsored whaling program was operating as a “scientific hunt” until it was revealed crew members were smuggling whale meat and selling it for personal profit. Cover up? The prosecutor has now dropped the case, and there will be no further investigation into this scandal. Greenpeace wants an independent investigation into this injustice of taxpayers money.
