M/V “RINA” refused access to the Paris MoU region
M/V “RINA” was detained in port Marina di Carrara (Italy) on 31st January 2017. This is the third detention in the Paris MoU region within the last 24 months. The ship flies the flag of the Republic of Togo, which is black on the current Paris MoU WGB list.
Therefore under the provisions of section 4 of the Paris MoU, the ship 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. This refusal of access will become applicable immediately after the ship is authorized to leave this port and anchorage. As this is the first refusal of access order the period of the refusal of access will be 3 months.
