The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) banned the Liberian-flagged bulk carrier TW Hamburg from Australian ports for 12 months, after finding evidence that the crew was underpaid.
Following the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s 12-month detention of the Panama-flagged “Fortune Genius” bulk carrier, the Australian Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) further affirmed this decision.
Australian authorities released from arrest the Liberian-flagged container ship ‘YM Eternity’, the Taiwanese-based owner Yang Ming informed, only a day after the ship was arrested at Port Botany over pollution dept.
AMSA informed that the sister ship of the YM Efficiency, which lost 81 shipping containers off the coast of Newcastle and Port Stephens in June 2018, has been arrested in Sydney for a pollution debt that could reach as high as AUD $20 million.
Australian authorities detained the Liberian-registered bulk carrier ‘Anna-Elisabeth’ after crew onboard the vessel complained of insufficient food, bullying aboard the vessel and denial of shore leave. ITF received the complaints from onboard the ship berthed at the Port Kembla Coal Terminal on 25 March.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority has banned the Philippines-flagged cargo ship “Thorco Luna”, as the ship was detained for a third time this year, because of consistently failing to meet international standards. The ship will not be permitted to enter any Australian port for a period of three months.
