The NZ Whaling activist, Peter Bethune, that was arrested during the last Sea Shepherd season in the southern Ocean has been deported from Japan after being given a suspended suspense for illegally boarding a Japanese whaling boat (as reported by ABC website).
An interesting outcome. I actually suspected that he would get the 'book thrown at him'. Really more like it was swept under the carpet. In the end he only served a total of 4 months in a Japanese prison.
