Sri Lanka Shipping Refuses To Remove Wreck

Friday, September 03, 1999
Sri Lanka Shipping Company Ltd. has reportedly said that it will not remove the wreck of a Turkish ship and its cargo of fertilizer, which authorities say may pollute the ocean. Company chairman Lester Weinman stated that the company does not hold itself responsible for the removal of the ship, which broke in two while being towed ashore. "We acted in good faith and in the pursuance of our normal business," he said. The Marine Pollution Prevention Authority (MPPA) has said it is considering legal action against the firm if it did not remove the wreck of the abandoned Meliksah, which the company attempted to tow without any salvage contract from the owners or permission from local authorities.
