MM&P Chief of Staff Talks to BBC About the Case of the Seaman Guard Ohio

September 24th 2015

MM&P Chief of Staff Klaus Luhta was interviewed by the BBC for a report on the Seaman Guard Ohio. Crewmembers who were aboard the ship are being held for trial in India two years after the vessel was taken into custody by the authorities. Luhta says AdvanFort, the company that operated the ship, is “wilfully culpable” in the case because its managers ordered the captain to illegally take on fuel and to hide the fact from the authorities.
