Tierversuchsgegnerin bereut Hundebefreiung

Autor: Achim Stößer | Datum:
Weil sie ihre Taten bereute, wurde die dreijährige Bewährungsstrafe, zu der eine SHAC-Aktivistin verurteilt wurde, weil sie einen Hund aus einem Labor befreit und aus einem anderen Videobänder entwendet hatte, zur Bewährung ausgesetzt.

"Ihre selbstgerechten kriminellen Taten, die von ihrem dogmatischen Glauben, da√ü Tierversuche Tierqu√§lerei sind, herr√ľhren, sind es nicht wert, in Betracht gezogen zu werden", so der Richter.

Ob der befreite Hund ebenso wie die Tierversuchsgegnerin die Befreiung bereute?

Animal rights activist sentenced in Japan

TOKYO (Reuters) - A British animal rights activist has received a suspended prison term from a Japanese court for breaking into university laboratories which she believed were used for animal experiments.

Dawn Hurst, 31, stole a dog from one laboratory and a dozen videotapes from another, Kyodo news agency quoted the court ruling as saying. It said the offences took place in Tokyo and the western Japan city of Osaka in 2001 and 2002.

Hurst, a member of a group called Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC), received a three-year prison term suspended for five years, a court official said.

Judge Satoshi Shibayama at Osaka District Court said he suspended the sentence because Hurst had sincerely repented for her actions.

He was quoted as saying: "Her self-righteous criminal acts, arising from her dogmatic belief that animal experiments are animal abuse, are not worthy of consideration."

Prosecutors had demanded a three-year prison term for Hurst, saying her actions were habitual and deliberate, and had obstructed valid scientific experiments, Kyodo said.
