The captain of the Sea Shepherd, New Zealander Peter Buthane, pleaded guilty to four charges at the commencement of his trial in Tokyo today.

Buthane was arrested in February after he scaled the deck of the whaling vessel the Shonan Maru II.

Bethune pleaded guilty to the charges of trespass, vandalism, obstructing commercial activities and carrying a knife. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge of assault causing injury.

If convicted, he faces a maximum jail term of 15 years.
