Bulker Magic Orient Arrested in Singapore
The 1994-built bulk carrier Magic Orient has been arrested in Singapore, most likely due to unresolved payments, according to Supreme Court of Singapore’s records.
Owned by South Korean company Boyang Shipping, the Korea-flagged vessel was detained in the evening hours of February 29, following instructions from a local law firm Haridass Ho & Partners.
The reasons that led to the arrest of the 28,400 dwt vessel have not yet been confirmed.
Supreme court’s data shows that during January 2016, two other bulk carriers were arrested.
The vessels in question are the Indian-flagged Badri Prasad and the Hong Kong-flagged Ao Hong Ma.
