The effect of piracy globally, off Somalia and increasingly in the waters of Benin and Nigeria, is a serious problem for seafarers who are constantly under threat, according to latest Asian Shipowners Forum (ASF) held in Manila.
The continuing threat of piracy on commercial shipping is of deep concern not only to seafarers and their families dealing with trauma over long periods of loved ones held hostage and post-traumatic stress for those captured, said members of The Seafarers Committee of the Asian Shipowners Forum.
