Barkly Pearl expelled by AMSA after being found too deficient to enter Australia. Gulf Livestock 1 insolvent/sunk. Yangtze Harmony arrested in Singapore. Now Yangtze Fortune arrested in Australia. The pack of cards????
Trade Winds reports that the Yangtze Fortune, a second livestock carrier managed by Dalian-based Accord Ship Management has been arrested, this time in Australia by the Singapore arm of Danish bunker supplier Dan-Bunkering. Court records indicate that the 11,670-gt Yangtze Fortune (built 2005) was arrested at an anchorage off Portland in New South Wales (NSW? surely Victoria - VALE note) over a bunker bill dispute. Australian livestock exporter UMMS Projects and Livestock and produce exporter Australian Global Exports have both filed caveats against the lifting of the arrest against the ship.
VALE is relieved that this ship with its litany of infrastructure problems that caused so much animal welfare suffering (which was reported over and over and over again to Dept of Ag - who predictably did nothing), is finally off the scene - good riddance!
