Paris Mou Detains 2 Cargo Ships
Paris MoU detained the 1983-built, 5221 dwt general cargo ship Jana in Constanta, Romania. Seeing that this is the ship’s third detention within the last 36 months, it 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.
The ship flies the flag of Saint Vincent And The Gernadines which is black Flag on the current Paris MoU BGW list.
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 for the vessel, the period of the refusal of access will be 3 months.
Paris MoU also detained Cambodia-flagged, 1976-built, 1400 dwt general cargo ship Mamo in Malaga, Spain on November 25, 2014. The ship was permitted to sail on a single voyage to the port of Alexandria, Egypt, on December 18, 2014 to rectify the deficiencies. On January 21 the PSC Authorities from Egypt notified Paris MoU Administration that the vessel had not arrived yet,
thus not complying with the conditions of release.
M/V Jana is owned and operated by Ukrainian Mestex Shipping & Trading, and M/V Mamo’s owner and operator is Athens-based Xt Mesogiakos Navigation.
