MPA Investigating Sea Prince Incident

Following the incident involving the Indonesia-registered ferry Sea Prince off Batam on November 29, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has launched an investigation into the incident with the ferry operator, Batamfast, and relevant Indonesian authorities.

MPA said it has also interviewed some of the affected passengers and the ferry crew members, and calls on the members of the public to provide information regarding the incident.

As World Maritime News reported, all passengers were accounted for after the vessel hit a floating object last week.

At the time of the incident, the ferry was carrying a total of 97 passengers, including 51 Singaporeans and 7 crew members.

The incident occurred shorty after the ferry departed the Nongsapura ferry terminal.
