The environmental group AGADEN will demand the Port Authority of Algeciras to have the MED STAR (Intershipping) withdrawn and scrapped.
AGADEN started to publish a press release and a video, showing the vessel with dense smoke coming out of the funnel. The group considers that the ship has reached the end of its useful life.
The Maritime Authorities stopped six ferries due to pollution during the three months of the “Operation Paso del Estrecho”. In virtually all cases, the arrest was due to an excess of air emissions.
