Sessions at the Annual Meeting and Conference in Manila included the following:

Abandoned Ship! Iron Monster Left in Port

A lively panel discussion addressing a dramatic piracy incident at sea leading to a cargo vessel subsequently limping into port in damaged condition. The vessel is then arrested by cargo interests. In addition, the crew are having difficulty communicating with the ship’s owners and are threatening to leave the arrested ship. There are substantial claims, and potential claims, from various parties – including cargo interests and the crew. Further, the solvency of the owners of the ship is in doubt.

The audience will gain an insight in to the various interests and arguments – both competing and aligned – that arise from the given fact pattern.
