Poseidon Fishing Responds to Maritime Union of New Zealand
Press Release by Poseidon Fishing Ltd, Monday 19th September
Poseidon Fishing is concerned that the press release entitled "Brutality And Abuse On Board Slave Ships Revealed By Escaped Crew" is ill founded, incorrect and will continue to damage the credibility of legitimate foreign charter operators. The title and the statements contained in the press release are emotive and designed more to raise the profile of ITF, than to address the underlying issues. Poseidon will not be used as a soap box for the ITF.
The statements made by Ms Whelan and the ITF are defamatory and redress may be sought against ITF.
