Goundar Shipping Limited's (GSL) Director, George Goundar, is outraged that not all his vessels will not be able to sail out today, as ordered by the Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF).
Speaking to Fiji Sun from Japan, Mr Goundar said he was not pleased that MSAF had singled them out from the other shipping companies.
MSAF has ordered that GSL will not operate from today until it complies with the Maritime (Safe Ships Management) Regulations 2014. The regulation was introduced in 2014, and comes into effect today. The order means that hundreds of employees, and business operations will be affected and passengers who love to travel with GSL will need to make new arrangements with other local shipping companies.
