We would do the same thing again
Even Though it has created problems for Maersk Line, that the shipping company’s container ship Alexander Maersk picked up 113 migrants in the Mediterranean Sea on the night to Friday, and did not get permission to free them before four days later, the company will not hesitate to pick up people in need in the future.
"At any time we will provide all the support and help needed for people in need of it. We do not waste time speculating if we end up in a similar situation. We will deal with it at that time if it should happen, "says Palle Laursen, Technical Director of Maersk Line, according to Berlingske Business on Tuesday morning to Ritzau.
"To the extent that someone is in danger at sea, we will take action. There is no doubt about that, "says Palle Laursen.
