South African Review - June 2011
Welcome to the first edition of our joint UK P&I and UK Defence Club review for our South African Members. In this review, one of our correspondents gives an overview of stowaway problems, with specific reference to local South African issues. The question of armed guards on-board ship as a counter to piracy is also reviewed on page 7.
