Norwegian ships should not sail under Liberia’s flag of convenience.
This is the opinion of Elisabeth Grieg, board member of the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association (NRF).
She wants to again bring the issue before the NRF board, which has earlier urged Norwegian shipowners not to sail under Liberia’s flag.
The financial newspaper Dagens Naeringsliv writes that Norwegian shipowners have altogether 150 vessels registered under Liberia’s flag of convenience.
According to the newspaper, the money paid in fees for this privelege, has helped finance a corrupt regime.
