In Nakhodka, after the response measures taken by the transport prosecutor, the shipowner raised the sunken ship, PRIMPRESS reports with reference to the press service of the Far Eastern Transport Prosecutor’s Office.
During the prosecutor’s inspection it was established that in July 2017, the sea tug MB-348 sank in the bay of the Sea of Japan. This was due to non-compliance with the requirements of the legislation on safety of navigation when performing towing operations.
The Nakhodka transport prosecutor sent an application to the court demanding that the shipowner be obliged to lift the sunken ship. At present, the defendant has completed the work in full.
