However one must give them full marks for chutzpah.
The incident happened as Sea Shepherd was blocking attempts to refuel the Nisshin Maru with heavy fuel oil from a South Korean-owned vessel, Sun Laurel, he said..........
........"We are deeply concerned of the potential for a massive oil spill and ecological disaster in the pristine Antarctic wilderness, off Australia's Antarctic coast in Australian waters."
You'd think the media might ask a question or three about the legality of their actions in bringing their ships into close contact with other vessels on the high seas, guaranteed to bring about collision and danger to human life.
The Japanese military should have torpedoed the bastards and left them to drown or freeze.
Eventually the truth of the matter will be heard and will nor coincide with this pathetic report by TVNZ.
