One More Ship Detained in Singapore

General cargo vessel Korex SPB No. 2 has been arrested in Singapore waters, according to data provided by Supreme Court of Singapore.

The 15,000 dwt heavy lift vessel, owned by South Korea’s shipping company Korea Line Corporation, was arrested for undisclosed reasons on January 26, 2017.

The ship, which flies the flag of South Korea, was taken into custody following instructions from local law company Resource Law LLC.

Focal Investigation & Security Agency Pte Ltd has been appointed for security and investigation purposes related to the arrest.

Built by China’s Samjin Shipbuilding Industries in 2012, Korex SPB No. 2 has a length of 152 meters and a width of 40 meters.

Only a week ago, the supreme court’s records showed that another vessel, the 1997-built Ambassador owned by Cyprus-based Transland Bulk Carriers, was arrested.
