UN Court Orders Japan to Stop Whale Hunting



The United Nations’ International Court of Justice on Monday ordered Japan to stop its whale hunting, dismissing the country’s argument that the whaling is for scientific purposes

“Japan shall revoke any existent authorization, permit or license granted in relation to JARPA II [research program] and refrain from granting any further permits in pursuance to the program,” the International Court of Justice’s Judge Peter Tomka said on Monday.
