Greek-controlled Ships in Liberian Registry Total 61 Vessels

first_imgATHENS: Figures released by the Greece Shipping Cooperation Committee (GSCC) show that Liberia has further strengthened its position as the undisputed leading open registry of choice for Greece ship owners and operators.The GSCC statistics show that, in the year to end-March 2015, the number of Greek-controlled ships in the Liberian Registry increased by a net total of 61 vessels, more than any other registry in the world. In the process, the Liberian Registry moved closer to the Greek flag, which recorded a net total of 20 new registrations in the 12-month period.The GSCC figures show a total of 739 Greek-controlled ships, aggregating 54.03m deadweight terms (dwt), registered with Liberia, compared to 678 vessels of 49.05m dwt at end-March 2014. Eighteen per cent of Greek-controlled ships are now registered under the Liberian flag. This is an increase on the corresponding figure for the previous year and positions Liberia second only to the Greek national flag in this respect.Almost 16 per cent of the world fleet in deadweight terms is now controlled by Greek interests, and the average age of that fleet is 2.5 years below the world average. The total amount of Greek-controlled ships in the world fleet is now at its highest level since 2008 / 2009, and the fact that Liberia has played such a leading role in this quality growth is testament to the mutual trust and respect which exists between the Greek ship owning community and the Liberian Registry.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Police nabbed bandits during supermarket robbery

first_img…gun, ammo foundThree bandits who were in the process of robbing a supermarket at Grove, East Bank of Demerara (EBD) on Wednesday, were nabbed following swift actions by Police.Reports are the three men – one of whom was armed with a handgun – stealthily entered the “Number One Supermarket” at about 04:30h on Wednesday morning.The men pounced on the lone security guard and bounded his hands with his shoe lace. The bandits then proceeded to the third floor of the building, removed the grill from a window and entered the building.As the bandits were all inside of the supermarket, the 53-year-old security guard, managed to free himself and immediately alerted neighbours who summoned the Police.Prompt response from the lawmen resulted in the bandits being caught in the act. When Guyana Times visited the supermarket, Andy Lin, whose family owns the business, and who resides in the top flat of the building, said he was asleep and unaware of what was happening. He said that at about 06:00h, he learnt of what had transpired when a Police Officer went into the upper flat and alerted him. The CCTV footage was also reviewed, which showed the men entering the premises.When the men were nabbed they had $70,000 in prepaid phone cards and an undisclosed sum of cash in their possession.Meanwhile a .38 revolver with six live matching rounds was also found.An employee of the business told this publication that the supermarket was only opened about five weeks ago. Meanwhile, the bandits – two of whom hail from Herstelling Sea Dam and the other from Covent Garden, EBD – are being processed for court.last_img read more

first_imgMichael Murphy: put Donegal ahead.Donegal 1-08 Dublin 0-10Donegal’s senior footballers’ dream of  joining their minors at All-Ireland finals day is on the cards as they lead reigning champions Dublin in their semi-final clash at Croke Park.Jim McGuinness’s men are ahead by a single point at the break against a Dublin side that threatened to over-run the Ulster champions with the type of football that has them the bookies’ favourites to retain the title. However, after a shakey start Donegal have fought back and are well in contention for retaining the title they last won in 2012.Donegal got off to the a great start, Colm McFadden firing over a free in the first minute to put the Tir Chonaill men ahead.However, Dublin were three ahead within four minutes, putting over four unanswered points.Karl Lacey put over a lovely point in the 13th minute to settle the nerves but Dublin hit back with three unanswered points to open up a five point advantage in the 20th minute. Michael Murphy kept his nerve to successfully convert a free in the 21st minute to keep his side in touch.Funston and Kavanagh exchanged points before Durkan got down brilliantly to push out what looked an almost certain goal from Connolly.Connolly made amends with an excellent point which was followed by two unanswered points for Donegal to put three between the sides in the 28th minute.Murphy had an excellent chance to reduce the arrears but his weak shot from 20 yards fell tamelessly short.But he made up for the miss with an excellent long distanee point immediately afterwards. Ryan McHugh put Donegal ahead when he took advantage of poor Dublin defending when slid the ball to back of the net two minutes from the break.A late Dublin point sees Donegal lead by the slenerest of lead at the break and on course to emulate their minors who earlier reached their first ever All-Ireland final with a thrilling win over Dublin.Donegal: Durkan, E.
