CESMA assembled at the premises of the Freeport Riga Authority at the invitation of the Latvian Shipmasters’ Association (LKKA).The meeting was attended by 17 representatives from 13 European nations and 16 shipmasters from the Latvian association, as well as representatives from the press and speakers.
As usual, the Assembly started with a small seminar on actual maritime issues.
The speakers were introduced by CESMA president Captain Hubert Ardillon.
1. Ms Aneta Logina (World Maritime University) and Latvian citizen, talked about “Criminal procedures and sanctions against seafarers after large-scale ship-source pollution”. This thesis was made by Ms. Logina to obtain a PhD in Maritime Affairs at the WMU in Sweden. The complete study, including a checklist, can be found on the Digital Repository of the WMU website: http// dissertations/508.
2. Capt. Dimitar Dimitrov (BSMA, Bulgaria) presented a paper on the IMO Maritime Ambassador Scheme – Tool to return the attractiveness of the maritime profession. (see complete text in this issue of the CESMA NEWS).
3. Capt. Mrs. Cajsa Jerler Fransson of the Swedish Administration talked about the EU Effiensea / STM project. STM (Sea Traffic Management) is now in its second phase which means that about 300 vessels are in a trial phase in the Nordic and Mediterranean area. The basic principle is information exchange between instruments or machines on board and ashore, so that some of the workload of the officers is taken over by automatic data exchange. This can by anything and by everybody; authorities, agents, crewing agents, owners. All this information is gathered in the so-called ”Maritime Cloud”. The project is co-funding the project which is a successor to the Mona Lisa 2 project. CESMA sits in the Advisory Board and will attend the mid-term conference of the project in Treviso, Italy, on 12 September 2017.

 The afternoon session was dedicated to the CESMA Annual General Assembly, presided by Capt. Hubert Ardillon. The agenda is updated every year according to the latest developments and bring these up for discussion. Although no new cases came to our attention, criminalisation of seafarers remains and has to remain on the CESMA agenda. Capt. Giovanni Lettich (CNPC, Italy) reported on the developments of the accident in 2013 of the ”Jolly Nero” where 9 people lost their lives when the vessel, during manoeuvring in the narrow port basin, hit the manned harbour control tower, situated near the edge of the quay side, causing it to collapse. Cause of the accident, probably malfunctioning of the engines not following the orders from the bridge. So far the captain, pilot officer and chief engineer are convicted to heavy prison sentences from 7 up to 10 years. Case is still not settled.
12th May, day of the Assembly, was the day that the final verdict after his appeal of Capt. Schettino of the ”Costa Concordia” was to be made public. The 16 years in prison was found to be extraordinary by the Assembly, particularly in comparison with the punishment of notorious criminals in Italy. It shows that Capt. Schettino, who has admitted guilt over part of the accusations concerning the accident, is used as a scapegoat to hide shortcomings in the construction and operation of the vessel.
It was again mentioned that masters should consider a personal assurance to cope with any cases of criminalisation in foreign countries as many ship owners or operators tend to end their assistance or responsibility on the moment that there is any doubt about the guilt of the person concerned, even if there is no proof or final verdict of the local court of justice.
Piracy was shortly discussed. The Assembly has noted a downfall in the number of attacks near Somalia but warns for an upsurge as soon as the attention for proper countermeasures will decrease. It also urges the European Union to maintain a naval presence in the area. In other areas, such as Southeast Asia and the Gulf of Guinea, piracy and kidnappings are still frequently happening.
Fatigue was another point on the agenda. The 6 on / 6 off watch system is again considered reprehensible as it very well could lead to fatigue of the seafarers concerned. Proper checking of work/rest hours lists by Port State Control officers could be of welcome assistance in this respect. Some countries, like Spain, refuse admittance to their ports of ships using the 6 on / 6 off watch system. The Assembly also noted a positive tendency. The number of ships, operated under the system, is decreasing. The results of the MARTHA project, which was recently presented at the IMO, and involves the problems of fatigue, was acclaimed by the Assembly.
