“How long is the prohibition for?”

 

Major Gilbert Swazo

“The prohibition is will be as long as it takes to ensure that that vessel – the engine is rectified for it to operate effectively so it does not discharge anything into the water. It was not something that was intentionally done. The operator of the vessel was aware of it and certainly you have to get the vessel back to safety.”
