PRESS RELEASE MOR GLAZ

Landerneau September 13, 2013

All who defend seafarers and sea and all maritime professionals would go mad with this information received by one of our members :

The "ferry" "Pentalina B", too old to sail in Ireland (in 2010) was disguised, as too often, and exported to Cape Verde to sail again.

The "Pentalina B" was stopped for several months, in the port of Brest. A forced stopover: the ship was in bad condition. She almost sank with her crew and 40 tons of fuel off the coast of Brittany on December 12, 2010.

Back to Brest-thanks to the tug "ABEILLE BOURBON"- this ferry was rightly detained by the Port State Control of Brest. When the ship has been repaired, she sailed to Cape Verde on May 29, 2011.

On September 3, 2013, a journalist photographed the crew of "Pentalina B" who was painting the hull Ė and who has deleted the name of the ship on the hull. On September 4, 2013 in the morning the ship disappeared, probably to galley elsewhere ..... According to our information (and we are often well informed) hundreds of floating engines are in this situation.

Letís imagine the life of seafarers who embark on these "floating engines" without name, without flag neither rules. MOR GLAZ would like that occasionally, in front of these situations, the professional of maritime activities officially protest against these manners.
