Panama Pilots Row

Canal Daily OperationMaritime Global Net - A ROW has broken out over pilotage in Panama. The Panama Pilots Services Corp. (PPSC) has accused Caribbean Pilots Inc (CPI) of violating pilotage regulations, Panamanian criminal law and the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) and has demanded immediate cancellation of the operational permit granted CPI. PPSC is a holding comprising three pilotage companies--Pilsemar, Quality Action Club and Practicos Unidos. Donaldo Sousa, PPSC’s attorney, says that legal action has been brought before the General Attorney’s Office against Dr. Hugo Torrijos Richa, CPI owner; CPI pilots Henry Pino and Antonio Barrios; the deputy administrator and the director of the Seafarers Department of the Panama Maritime Authority (AMP), Carlos Raul Moreno and Maribel Barreiro; nine marine officers and several executives working at Manzanillo International Terminal (MIT) and Colon Container Terminal (CCT).
