Equatorial Guinea-Fines imposed in the territorial waters

29 March 2007 No.540

Attached please find a report from the Association's correspondent at Marseille, France, Eltvedt O'sullivan. According to them, when a vessel is obliged to enter territorial waters of Equatorial Guinea, she must fly the courtesy ensign of the country, give notice to the local authority and agent, otherwise she will be fined. Hope this information will be of help to our members.
