New Zealand Fines Captain, Chief Officer for Providing False Info After Crewman Passed Out in Hold
The Captain and Chief Officer of the "Emilie Bulker" have been fined in New Zealand for giving false information to authorities after a crew member passed out in the ship’s hold. Captain Walter Damian and Chief Officer Ian Dingaling pleaded guilty in court last week to providing false information to Maritime New Zealand officials and fined $13,500 and $ 4,050, respectively. Captain Damian also pleaded guilty to permitting dangerous activity. The incident occurred at the Port of Tauranga on Sep 6, 2019, when the crew member was working in a hold containing palm kernel of the "Emilie Bulker". Fire and emergency personnel rescued the victim from the ship’s hold and transported him to the Tauranga Hospital, where he was placed in an induced coma. The victim was eventually discharged from hospital on Sep 10. According to Maritime New Zealand, the Captain and Chief Officer gave false information claiming that assessment and gas tests of the cargo-hold had been done, and the hold was safe to work in. The victim in this case will receive a reparation payment of $10,000 for emotional harm.
