The Post-Courier Turns the Heat Up!

I opened up today’s Post-Courier (Friday, August 29, 2008) and had to chuckle to myself.

Three days after I published my post, The PNG National Maritime Safety Authority: A Ship with a Hole?, the following article appeared on the front page of the Post-Courier:

"Left to Die"

The Post-Courier ran the story "Left to Die" on its front page concerning the fate of the two Filipino employees of the MV Sealark, owned by the Chairman of the NMSA: Hamish Sharp

The pressure is definitely back on the Chairman of the PNG National Maritime Safety Authority, his conflict of interest, the issues surrounding his appointment, the Minister who appointed him, and the controversy surrounding Sir Michael Somare and his interest in Pacific Register of Ships Limited (PRS) and the fact that PRS has been illegally issuing certifications of safety to ship owners.

Kudos to the Post-Courier for keeping the pressure on even after two years!
