MMLS proceeded to arrest under an Order (Sea Lady 29 for 2014), issued by Red Sea Court High Judge Motaz Al Zohairi. Court Secretary Mr. Hossam Mokhtar accompanied MMLS Executive Director, Said Mamdouh (سعيد ممدوح عبد المقصود), to process the arrest at the Zeitco Oil Marina in Gabal el Zeit.
Legal action was initiated due to what appears to be a developing trend of unpaid maritime debts owed to by Ships & Boats Oil Services.
"Ships & Boats Oil Services entered into a contractual obligation and we look forward to this matter being settled amicably," Mamdouh stated on behalf of his client, United Captain Group Oil Services of Alexandria.
The claims against Ships & Boats Oil Services now total $646,000 (USD).
The first arrest of Sea Lady, as reported by The Maritime Executive (MAREX), was made on May 14, 2014. (http://www.maritime-
