U.K. – Multi-Ship Casualty Investigation

Friday, February 02, 2007
The UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) issued the report of the multi-agency investigation of the collision between the Arctic Ocean and the Maritime Lady, the capsize of the Maritime Lady, contact with the wreck by the Sunny Blossom, and the subsequent grounding of the Sunny Blossom in the Elbe River on 5 December 2005 [and that’s just the title]. The investigation may be most memorable, though, for its discussion of the unwillingness of two principal witnesses (the master of the Maritime Lady and the nautical supervisor of VTS Brunsbüttel) to share their recollections with the investigators. The “American disease” seems to be spreading. Source: HK Law
