Rosie Kunneke is from South Africa and she also was charged with attempting to disrupt the slaughter of the pilot whales. She was thrown to the ground by three policemen and charged with disrupting the slaughter. Her fine is the highest at 35,000 kroner (4,690€, approx. $5,167) or 14 days in jail.
Rosie is demanding her right to serve her 14 days in jail. She said, "If you call what we did a crime, we demand to serve our time."
But the wrath of the Danish court did not stop there. The court decided that some entity had to be responsible for the actions of the volunteers. Without any reason for doing so they decided that entity would be Sea Shepherd Global. No representatives from Sea Shepherd Global were even summoned to appear. Despite being denied the right of legal defense, Sea Shepherd Global was fined 75,000 kroner (10,000€, approx. $11,075). Sea Shepherd Global has no intention of paying this ludicrous fine.
The defendants demanded the right to serve the whales in a Faroese jail. The Danish prosecutor, the overly zealous Linda Hesselberg, is now trying to deny them the honor of serving time for the whales. She is demanding immediate deportation.
