11 Sea Shepherd activists were denied entry to Japan in 2014


Eleven members of the anti-whaling group Sea Shepherd were denied entry to Japan by the Justice Ministry in 2014, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Tuesday.

In general terms, Japan denies entry to those who “do not qualify for resident status under the immigration control law in terms of activities they plan to engage in while in Japan,” Suga said at a news conference.

Sea Shepherd is known for sabotaging dolphin catches in the town of Taiji, Wakayama Prefecture. The dolphin catches were the subject of the U.S. documentary “The Cove.”
