Decisión nº: 000833

In October 1997 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee considered the question of whether the Fund should take recourse action against the oil terminal at which the vessel was loading when the spill occurred. It was noted that the Fund’s Korean lawyer had stated that it was the general practice in Korea that once loading began it was the sole responsibility of the barge crew to load the oil properly, that the staff of the terminal only had an obligation check the manifold for any leaks and that there were no problems with the manifold in this case. In the light of this information the Committee decided that there were no grounds on which the Fund could take recourse against the the oil terminal.
