The liner suspected of pollution off Glénan is under investigation – Brest


Can you get rid of your garbage at sea with impunity, especially when your name is Ocean Majesty? Oil cans, plastic debris and various waste were found by fishermen and boaters in the area. The control carried out at the quay, at the end of the week, in the port of Lorient would not have made it possible to incriminate the liner in question. The maritime prefecture confirms that no particular failure was detected on board. The ship was able to leave without its captain being disturbed. “However, according to the route histories studied by the Regional Operational Center for Surveillance and Rescue (Cross) only the Ocean Majesty could be suspected, hence our questions” advances the association for the defense of the sea and sailors Mor Glaz based in Brest. Has the ship unloaded waste during its last stopovers? The association clearly points to the lack of traceability of waste deposits in ports.

No established link

If the link is not clearly established between this liner and these elements abandoned and found at sea, doubt is more than allowed for those who recovered some of this waste. “This pollution was not imagined by the fishermen! She did come from somewhere, and probably from a ship that crossed not very far from the area, ”supports the Mor Glaz association. “We must seek and find the culprit, we must organize more serious research!” “.

The investigation continues

For its part, the maritime prefecture of the Atlantic confirms that a procedure has been opened with the collection of testimonies from fishermen who have reported the facts. The Concarneau maritime gendarmerie has just launched a call for testimonies to all sea users who were circulating in the Glénan area on Friday morning. The CGT of Concarneau sailors also calls on all professionals and yachtsmen “to bring back to the union any waste that could have a link with the case”.
