We’ve received word that Sea Shepherd execs are currently in a meeting drafting a press release regarding the situation unfolding in Germany.

[UPDATE: You can view the full press release here. Watson’s attorney has confirmed that he has left Germany.]

According to various news reports, Paul Watson has left Germany. Reuters recently posted a story quoting a court official who says the Sea Shepherd founder has “not reported to the police since July 22.”

“His attorney informed us that his client had called him saying he left Germany for an unknown destination,” the source added.

Watson was arrested in early May after Germany received an extradition request from Costa Rica stemming from a shark finning incident in 2002. He has denied any wrongdoing.

“I had to take action with my crew a decade ago to protect hundreds of sharks, and of course, those shark poachers have very powerful allies in government and other places,” he said after his bail release.

While Germany considered the extradition case, Watson was banned from leaving Germany and ordered to report twice a day to police in Frankfurt.

“We do not know where Watson is at the moment. His arrest warrant is only valid in Germany, where we keep searching for him, and his exemption from arrest had been lifted,” a spokesman for the public prosecutor’s office in Frankfurt told Reuters.

We should get a clearer picture of the situation via Sea Shepherd shortly. We’ll update accordingly.
