  • The Indian Ocean island of Mauritius is still reeling from the devastating oil spill caused by the Panama-flagged, Japanese-owned vessel, The Wakashio.
  • Anglo-Eastern is the largest ship management company in the world by number of ships (over 900 vessels) and second largest in terms of seafarers (employing over 27,000 seafarers), with one of the world’s largest maritime training centers, located in India, as well as several more training centers across Asia.
  • The mythical ‘search for internet’ story appears to be yet another part of the Wakashio story that appears a lot less credible, given all the internet policies and facilities that ship owners and operators have put in since the start of COVID-19 lockdowns on vessels.
