MOR GLAZ PRESS RELEASE Landerneau September 7, 2013

First detention of a vessel (flying the flag of LIBERIA) under the Maritime Labour Convention 2006

MOR GLAZ has been informed by one of its member that the first ship was detained under the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006. The vessel “ATLANTIC CARRIER” flying flag of Liberia was detained the 3rd of September by the maritime authorities of the port ESBJERG in DENMARK.

The seafarers of that supply vessel did not have employment contract.

MOR GLAZ is satisfied to note that this big port chose to apply the law that protects seafarers of all nationalities and especially the poorest.

MOR GLAZ hopes that all countries that have ratified the MLC 2006 will have the same behavior as the port authorities of ESBJERG.

The port of ESBJERG is the largest port in Denmark.
