The environmental lawyer, Harley James Mitchell Morán, has filed a criminal complaint against the company Sea Energy Shipping, INC., for having put the marine environment at risk through its poor management of the fuel barge called Sea Lion.

The criminal complaint is based on documents from the Panama Maritime Authority (AMP) that corroborate that the ship had multiple irregularities, including oil, fuel and wastewater leaks, poor bilge management and repeatedly ignoring the manuals that correspond to the prevention of fires and accidents. The public servants contemplated the gradual deterioration of the ship, which had been authorized only since 2018, for the transportation and fuel supply service.

Already for the year 2021, after a spill in the waters of the Panama Canal, in mid-2020 and endangering the coasts of the island of Taboga in 2021, the AMP officials themselves pointed out: “In the condition that this The ship represents a danger to navigation and the marine environment, for which we recommend that the ship go to the dock as soon as possible or be removed to a special area, unloading all hydrocarbon residues on board.”

The lawyer points out that: “Notwithstanding the responsibility of the owners of the respective license, the failure of public servants to take punitive measures against the company Sea Energy Shipping, INC., is not only suspicious, but also contrary to law, since that it is not conceivable how a ship is considered “suitable” to offer the fuel dispatch service and a few years later, the same officials warn that that same ship is a danger to navigation and the environment”.

Article 402 of the Criminal Code states that whoever, without the authorization of the competent authority or in breach of the applicable regulations, handles, deposits, markets, transports or disposes of residual water, waste or solid, liquid or gaseous residues will be sanctioned with imprisonment from four to eight years, with aggravations according to their specific risks.
