The court follows the Country’s demand for the removal of the tuna boat fails on the reef to Arutua

On 9 April, the French Polynesia has appealed to the administrative tribunal by way of interim relief to enjoin the officials of the tuna boat fails on the reef of the atoll of Arutua to proceed with the removal of the vessel and, in waiting, to take all the security measures, under the control of the Country.

In its order issued Thursday, the tribunal has followed the requests of the French Polynesia. He has directed the company that owns the vessel and the operator to take, within a period of 5 days, all necessary measures for the security of the ship, to proceed with the removal of the cargo of fish which are likely to cause the emission of toxic gases and to prevent pollution by hydrocarbons, through pumping and recovery under penalty of a fine of 500 000 Fcfp per day of delay.

Moreover, in a period of 15 days, the owner and operator shall undertake the removal of the vessel, under penalty of a fine of 500 000 Fcfp per day of delay. Failing of execution, in this period, the French Polynesia is authorized to undertake such removal at the owner’s expense.
