Si hace poco escribiamos del Nautilus, ahora le toca a nuestros vecinos portugueses del Genmar Defiance, las condenas del Jefe Antonio Rodrigues y de su Primero Cavadas son para tirar cohetes comparadas con lo que están pidiendo por los asientos del ORB del Nautilus, y la verdad, viendo las pruebas que disponían contra estos dos, la cosa invita al optimismo, aunque nunca se sabe como te puede salir el Muñiz Fernández de turno.
Further, on Nov. 26, 2007, one of the crew members working in the ship’s engine room was ordered by First Engineer Cavadas and Chief Engineer Rodrigues to assist in connecting a hose from the vessel’s fresh water supply to the oil content meter on the ships oil-water separator. The connection allowed the engineers to “trick” the oil content meter and prevent it from shutting a valve that would re-circulate oily water to the bilge tank where it would be treated through the oil-water separator before being discharged overboard. By tricking the oil content meter, the oily water was permitted to be discharged directly overboard in violation of international law. Two engine room crewmen secretly photographed the illegal connection and provided the photographs to the Coast Guard during a boarding of the vessel on Nov. 28, 2007 while the Genmar Defiance was docked at the Valero refinery.
