Published: 12.12 - 2007 23:32Printer version    
Name of vessel: Predator
IMO registration number: 9316165
Call sign: C6UB5
Flag: Bahamas

The vessel is owned, operated and managed by Greek company Evalend Shipping Co SA.

When the vessel arrived New Zealand on October 12th 2007, it claimed to the harbour authorities that it had departed from the phosphate exporting port of Jorf Lasfar in Morocco.

But in fact, it had charged all its cargo at the harbour of El Aaiun, occupied Western Sahara, end of August 2007.  In fact, the vessel has not docked in Jorf Lasfar for at least the last 16 months.

From El Aaiun, it stopped over on Tenerife, Canary Islands, before continuing towards New Zealand via the Panama Canal.

See video clips of the vessel in Port of Tauranga, New Zealand, on October 12th 2007:

Since 1975, three quarters of the territory of Western Sahara has been occupied by Morocco. A majority of the population is still living in refugee camps in Algeria. Those who remained in their homeland are subjected to serious harassment from the Moroccan occupiers. For more than 40 years the Sahrawis have been waiting for the fullfilment of their legitimate right to self-determination.
