IRISL ships booted out of Hong Kong

Hong Kong: The Hong Kong Shipping Register is kicking out 19 ships operated by the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL)

"As it is of paramount importance to [the Hong Kong Marine Department] in safeguarding the quality of Hong Kong ships, HKMD has therefore taken action already in notifying the owners of these 19 ships for the closure of the registration in Hong Kong within 90 days beginning from the date of the notice being served," S.F. Wong, Hong Kong Shipping Register's general manager, said in a letter seen by Reuters.  [13/11/12]
