Maersk palkas sõjalaeva oma laevastikku kaitsma

A.P. Moller Maersk tellis oma laevastiku kaitseks Tansaaniast sõjalaeva ning sõdureid. Taani Laevaomanike Liidu sõnul on see abinõu ajutine. Kaitset soovib firma saada laevade liikumiseks Aafrika idaranniku regioonis.

“The waters east of Africa are a grey zone because developing countries don’t have resources to fight pirates. It’s a temporary solution that a shipper has hired a warship from another country, but there’s no alternative’, Jan Fritz Hansen, vice-president of the Danish Shipowners’ Association, told daily Jyllands-Posten.

Maersk hired the warship through Guardian GBS Security in December 2008. The ship was charged with protecting the Brigit Maersk tanker from pirates. It is unknown how much the shipping company paid for the service.

Loe edasi Maritime Danmark’ist.
