Goundar Shipping Vessels grounded by Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji

One of Fiji's largest passenger vessel fleets providing inter-island services within Fiji has been grounded due to Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF) assertions the fleet is in violation of the Maritime (Safe Ships Management System) Regulations 2014. George Goundar is currently claiming this action is a result of politically motivated decision-making. Further details on the range of violations being alleged by MSAF are now awaited.
