Paris MoU Bans One, Allows Another Freighter Back

Paris MoU has banned a Tanzania-flagged livestock carrier MV Delta 1, after the vessel was detained in Midia (Romania) on March 11.

This was Delta 1’s third detention within the Paris MoU region in 36 months.

The ship flies the flag of Tanzania which is black Flag on the current Paris MoU BGW list.  The ship will be refused further access to any port and anchorage in the Paris MoU region, except a port and anchorage of the ship’s flag State.

This refusal of access will become applicable immediately after the ship is authorised to leave this port and anchorage. As this is the first refusal of access order the period of the refusal of access will be 3 months.

Meanwhile, Paris MoU lifted the three-month ban imposed on the Vanuatu-flagged  M/V Furkan, which was banned by Bulgaria on December 20, 2014.

The refusal of access to Paris MoU ports was cancelled on March 23, 2015.
