MSC Flaminia victims Log Book
The flow of complaints from frustrated shippers whose goods are either destroyed in MSC Flaminia fire, or are held by the shipping company until owners pay the full cost of the goods, in accordance with declared General Average, is not drying up. I believe the fate of the vessel is rather irrelevant to the true meaning of MSC Flaminia story, which is, to my and all those who suffer understanding, a big-scale, gross violation of consumer rights. I don’t know how to help helpless minor shippers, or how to organize a collective claim and sue the shipping companies, both MSC and NSB. I decided to open a “MSC Flaminia victims Log Book” for all those whose goods were destroyed by fire, or are held by the companies in what may be considered as a blatant extortion. Tell your story and leave your contacts, even if no public and legal actions will arise, at least it will be a rough picture of hidden side of the accident, just for the record.
Anyone capable of assisting victims of MSC Flaminia, is welcome with comments, advises or maybe, initiatives.
