Decision ID: 001532

In February 2004 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee and the 1971 Fund Administrative Council, emphasising that the IOPC Funds should in principle take recourse action in order to discourage the operation of substandard ships, both decided not to pursue recourse action against the owner of the Zeinab on the sole ground that it would be extremely difficult to pursue such an action for legal and practical reasons.
