MSB Nearing Critical Launch Point
IAMSP has expressed its concern regarding the presence of “floating armouries” in the Red Sea and off of Fujairah. While some of these may be operating with the best intentions, it has been noted that many are operating using what can be considered questionnable practices. These practices, including practices that have raised questions regarding vessel registration and safe manning, have prompted several entities to begin to call for firmer oversight.
It is with pleasure IAMSP can communicate that MSB Group has communicated to IAMSP that it has passed benchmarks that immediately precede its launch. The MSB Group (www.msbgroupltd.com) will provide an official mechanism to address significant concerns regarding the proliferation of illicit arms in the region in addition to eliminating the need for companies to utilize measures that operate in grey areas in the domain of maritime operations, the proliferation of small arms and light weapons, human labour trafficking and adherence to customs controls.
More details will be released through MSB Group official communications channels in the near future and their website at www.msbgroupltd.com.
