Tanker AMARGI floating threat to Mytilene
Poor condition of product tanker AMARGI raised concerns about her safety and possible cargo leak. Vessel with several hundred tons of fuel on board was arrested by Greek authorities in the beginning of January in Lesbos island waters and taken to Mytilene, on a suspicion of fuel contraband. Vessel is anchored in Mytilene since Jan 6. The head of Mytilene Port requested from local court and shipping authorities of the island to undertake necessary actions in order to remove vessel, because tanker is threatening the environment and port.
