6 days and 5 emails to the Department regarding concerns about cattle on a very prolonged voyage to China have yet to yield a definitive answer of whether cattle were on board the MV Dareen between Qinhuangdao Port and Shanghai Port.
So far, VALE has been told that there have been no notifiable incidents for the ship and that "I can confirm the consignment was discharged at the port." Problem is that "I", the newly appointed A/g Assistant Secretary Joffrid Mackett, overlooked that this answer fails to define at which port (Qinhuangdao or Shanghai) the cattle were discharged .....or was it a deliberate obfuscation?
