121 - 12/99 - Port State Control - Garbage Management - Puerto Cabello - Venezuela
In one case a minor violation was noted and the inspector threatened to arrest the vessel. A fine of US$15,000 was levied. This was later negotiated down to US$ 1000 by the Master.
Members should remind masters to ensure that the appropriate regulations are complied with to avoid such situations.
