More allegations of serious overcrowding on Rabaul Queen

“Ol wokmeri blong Rabaul Shipping long Kimbe office tokim PPC long Kimbe olsem 668 pasindia kalap long Rabaul Queen ya. Ol tok tupla ol painim ol tirip igo long Morobe patrol Post long tube na ol rescuim ol long ples. Mi kisim stori long ol polisman blong Kimbe.”

My family and I are regular travellers on the Star Shipping and I can bet my life that the above statement is correct. Star ships has time and time again shown no regard for the safety of its passengers. I often travelled between Lae and Oro with hardly any space even on the deck to move around. Star ships has always put profits before safety.

The tragedy of the Rabaul Queen was avoidable but the Management of Star Shipping knew the risks they were taking by taking 368 passengers  more than the ship was registered to carry. This is criminal negligence on the part of Peter Sharp who owns the vessel and he should be dealt with as a criminal. I will be too happy  to come before a Royal Commission and tell the inquiry of my experiences on their ships.

    There has not been one report in ANY other medica but here that the ship was carrying more than about 350 passengers. Over 600? Where’s the evidence?????
