On World Maritime Day, calls grow to detain ships in order to stop the humanitarian crisis at sea
An influential group of unions has called for ships to be detained in ports if seafarers have been onboard longer than international treaties allow. Marking World Maritime Day today, the Nautilus Federation of 22 maritime unions said seafarers are being denied their human rights during the pandemic with as many as 300,000 stuck at sea beyond the agreed 11-month maximum service.
