Indonesian tragedy: ferry seaworthy

JAKARTA 03 January – The Indonesian ferry Senopati Nusantara, which sank on the night of 28/29 December off Mandalika Island in the Java Sea, was seaworthy, transport minister Hatta Rajasa has confirmed. The vessel had the required safety equipment and completed a repair and maintenance programme last year. The Senopati Nusantara was built in Japan in 1990 and was able to carry 850 passengers. Although the ship’s manifest said there were about 700 passengers and crew on board, ships in Indonesia are widely believed to carry more passengers than certificates stipulate. There are still no firm figures of how many survived or lost their lives, but at least 200 have been rescued, and more than 400 remain unaccounted for. The ship was heading south from Kalimantan on the island of Borneo to Central Java when it was battered by 5-6m waves, forcing the captain to send out distress calls.
