Japan to resume research whaling by end of year at earliest

Yesterday the Japan Times said that The whalers expect to receive a permit from the Japanese government to kill whales once again in the Southern Ocean.

Will the Japanese government issue a permit to kill whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary in defiance of the International Whaling Commission's (IWC) order to cease and desist from the slaughter of whales under the guise of "scientific research" whaling?

What is the purpose of international laws and regulations if a nation ignores the rule of law and does what it pleases in defiance and contempt of science, conservation and the laws?
