THE Liberian Registry has awarded an honorary Master’s Licence to the Revd Canon Ken Peters, Director of Justice & Welfare for the Mission to Seafarers, in recognition of the generous and continued support he has provided in connection with Liberia’s Maritime Labour Convention (MLC 2006) Inspector Training Courses. 

 

Presenting the award during the Mission to Seafarers Reception held at Lambeth Palace in London on September 27, Michalis Pantazopoulos, Senior Vice-President of the Liberian Registry, paid tribute to the contribution made by Revd Peters, who has been a long-time friend of the Liberian Registry. He noted that, most recently, the contribution made by Revd Peters has been instrumental in the global training of Liberia’s inspectors as the registry prepares them for the task of helping Liberian-flag shipowners implement MLC 2006. Mr Pantazopoulos said, “Rev Peters has generously provided his inspirational lecture for a number of Liberian MLC Inspector Courses, discussing with more than eighty Liberian inspectors the core underlying principle of the MLC convention - protection of the interests and welfare of seafarers. His message has provided Liberia’s inspectors with value-added knowledge and essential skills which they can use when conducting MLC inspections.

 

“Revd Peters’ lectures have been so well-received by Liberia’s worldwide network of inspectors that the registry is honoured and grateful to have him as an essential part of  its continued MLC Inspector Training Programme, as it plans to train an additional 200 inspectors during a series of upcoming MLC courses.” Scott Bergeron, Chief Executive Officer of the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR), which sponsored the event at Lambeth Palace, says, “We are very grateful to Revd Peters – I suppose we should now call him Captain Reverend Peters - for all his hard work and inspirational input to the registry efforts to promote and implement MLC 2006. The Mission to Seafarers provides help and support to those in need, working in more than 230 ports throughout the world, tending to the practical and spiritual welfare of seafarers of all nationalities and faiths. It is a privilege to work with Revd Peters, and to honour him in this way for the great contribution he has made – and continues to make – to seafarers’ welfare.”
