Development frenzy hits Maheskhali hard Iftekhar Mahmud . Dhaka | Prothom Alo Jul 16, 2019 Investment is pouring into Maheskhali, all the way from China, the US, South Korea, Malaysia, Japan and Thailand. There is a frenzy of development all over, forests are being torn down and hills being razed to give way to roads, power plants, industries and more. The island is hardly recognisable anymore. Maheskhali, the island located in northwest Cox’s Bazar, has been hit by this wave of development. A seaport is being constructed on the adjoining island Matarbari, changing the entire appearance of the area. A visit to Maheskhali in December last year and May this year revealed the mega development that has hit Maheskhali hard. As we settled down at a tea stall in Maheskhali’s Chaliatali Bazar, a middle-aged man rushed forward. Seeing our note pads and camera, he asked, “Are you journalists?” Affirming...

On-Going Arrest a “Gross Disregard for Human Rights” By The Maritime Executive 2019-07-13 Urgent calls have been made for the release of 13 crew on a pipelay crane vessel arrested off Ghana. The Sea Horizon was arrested 10 months ago after the Nigerian company Fortune Global Shipping & Logistics claimed it was owed $1.9 million from another Nigerian company, Ranger Subsea.   Frank Coles, CEO of the vessel’s shipmanager, Wallem, says the vessel is without power and the owners are refusing to provide funds for fuel. “This is a despicable situation that shows the gross disregard for human rights and humanitarian action on the part of most of the involved parties. The owners are an investment fund hiding behind a corporate veil, aided by their lawyers.” Asked if there are enough regulations to protect seafarers’ human rights, Coles says: “The question should be is there enough interest in seafarers and the enforcement...

Merchant ships urged to avoid using private armed teams in Mideast Gulf in International Shipping News, Piracy and Security News 15/07/2019 Shipping companies sailing through the Middle East Gulf are being urged to avoid having private armed security guards onboard as the risk of escalation in the region rises, industry associations say. Relations between Iran and the West have become increasingly strained after Britain seized an Iranian tanker in Gibraltar last week and London said its warship HMS Montrose had to fend off Iranian vessels seeking to block a British-owned tanker from passing through the Strait of Hormuz. The most recent incidents followed a spate of attacks on tankers since May around the Strait of Hormuz and the Gulf of Oman, which the United States has blamed on Iran and are denied by Tehran. An advisory issued in recent days by leading shipping associations warned against using private armed...

Panama to withdraw flags from more vessels that violate sanctions in International Shipping News 15/07/2019 Panama will withdraw its flag from more vessels that violate sanctions and international legislation, the country’s maritime authority told Reuters, following the removal of about 60 ships linked to Iran and Syria from the Panamanian registry in recent months. After the re-imposition of sanctions on Iran by Washington in 2018, Panama’s former president Juan Carlos Varela gave the green light to remove a fleet of 59 tankers from the country’s registry, according to two sources close to the decision. Most of those vessels were owned by Iranian state-run companies but they also included ships linked to oil deliveries to Syria, the sources added. A separate supertanker, the Grace 1, made its way to Gibraltar in early July, where it was seized by British Royal Marines on suspicion of violating sanctions against Syria. The vessel...

How IMO 2020 affects transport of ore, coal, grain and other dry bulk in Dry Bulk Market,International Shipping News 13/07/2019 Much of the focus on the IMO 2020 regulation – which limits the sulfur content of fuel used on ships and their emissions to 0.5 percent starting January 1, 2020 – has been on consequences for tanker and container-ship profitability. But the fallout is much more pervasive than that. Dry bulk shipping will see major effects as well, asserted top executives of Safe Bulkers (NYSE: SB), Star Bulk (NASDAQ: SBLK) and Scorpio Bulkers (NYSE: SALT) during a Capital Link webinar on July 9. According to Scorpio Bulkers president Robert Bugbee, “The most obvious effect is that it is going to create a differentiation between those vessels that have lower fuel consumption than their sisters, as fuel pricing is going to be higher, and between those vessels that have scrubbers...

Shipping at the spotlight of terrorism in Piracy and Security News,Shipping Law News 13/07/2019 Is terrorism the new norm for shipping? THE STORY On the 13/06/2019, two oil tankers were victim to what has been described as “sabotage” attacks in the Gulf of Oman, leaving one ablaze and both adrift.

Japan’s trade ministry reported, that the two oil tankers carried “Japan-related” cargo.
