Canal Tugboat Captains file criminal complaint

Canal

The tugboat captains of the Panama Canal yesterday filed a criminal complaint against waterway administrators, accusing them of having affected maritime transport on 12 and 13 April, by unilaterally eliminating the third seaman who goes aboard the tugboats to support the transit of the neopanamax.

The Union of Captains and Cover Officers of the Panama Canal has previously warned that this measure should have been notified and consulted, as it affects the dynamics and security of their work.

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has said that the information was provided to seafarers, as stipulated in its regulations.

While the captains, who command the crew of the tugboat, were informed through the documents that rest on each boat.

The difference caused a resistance on the part of the captains to assist the passage of the neopanamax by the new locks, which paralyzed and delayed the passage of the ships.

The ACP warned of the fact and initiated investigations. But the captains have defended themselves, saying that their actions responded to security measures.
