 Royal Arsenal  (Bulk Carrier)
vor 3 Std von Timsen

Bulkcarrier still detained months after accident
Nine months after the initial incident, the continued detention of the "Royal Arsenal" at the port of Umm Qasr in Iraq, was causing major concern and frustration to the owners, ship managers, and insurers. The ship had been in a collision with the dive support craft "Al Misbar" owned/operated by the GCPI (General Company for Ports of Iraq) ,which was being used to ferry port employees from an offshore oil terminal in August 2017. The "Royal Arsenal", had a compulsory Iraqi Pilot on board supervising the navigation. The smaller vessel overturned and many of the 23 passengers and eight crew were trapped inside. Despite the rescue efforts of the GCPI salvage teams, 21 personnel died. Since the incident, no quantified claims have been filed at Court or requests for security presented and the vessel has been forced to remain at Umm Qasr. Iraq's Transport Minister, Kazem Finjan, has directed that compensation be paid to the victims' families, which in addition to a cash payment from the GCPI includes land for a new home and employment at the GCPI for a family member. Accrued retirement benefits will also be paid. The families have made large unsubstantiated claims for additional compensation from the Royal Arsenal, whilst the GCPI have failed to quantify any of their alleged claims. The latter appears to be compounded due to the report that the reinsurers of the "Al Misbar" have raised issues in relation to how she was operated/managed as she was not a designated transportation vessel. The "Royal Arsenal"’s master was detained pending further investigation and released on bail after three days. Little substantive progress has been made before the local Courts and in appeals to the Court of Cassation in Baghdad and the owners were now commencing proceedings before ITLOS (International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea) in Hamburg based on breaches of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea by the Iraqi authorities. The owners and West of England P&I Club want to settle all claims on a basis which reflects the merits and the failings of the GCPI. To date, discussions to date have not been successful since the demands of the claimants have far exceeded the value of the vessel.
