K Line mulls avoiding H’bantota port in protest
December 11, 2016, 11:02 pm 

By Shamindra Ferdinando

 

Following an incident where the Hambanota port workers forcibly held giant Japanese car carrier Hyperion Highway and its crew for five days, the vessel’s owner Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha popularly known as K Line has warned that the company may not use the port unless its security concerns can be addressed convincingly.

The vessel is the world’s third largest vehicle carrier.

Port workers launched a strike early last week in protest against the proposed agreement between the government and state owned China Merchants Port Holdings Company Ltd to operate the port as a public-private partnership.

Local agents ABC Shipping had been informed of K Line’s position before the Navy intervened on Saturday to clear the Hambantota port of the unruly strikers. Japanese operator is one of the largest international sea transporters.

A senior company official told The Island that they were worried about the possible cancellation of scheduled K Line visits on Dec 17 and 18.

K Line indicated that vehicles bound for Hambantota port could be offloaded in Singapore for onward transfer to Sri Lanka in another vessel. "We are making an effort to convince K Line not to suspend services to Hambantota."

Responding to a query, the official said that a discussion was scheduled to take place on Monday (Dec 12) to decide on future course of action.

Striking workers have been accused of causing severe damage to the administrative building. The port remained crippled for want of government and striking workers’ union reaching an agreement on the transfer of port control to the Chinese.

Shipping sources told The Island that the fate of Hambantota port was in the balance due to continuing worker unrest. In case vehicle carriers pulled out of Hambantota port, it wouldn’t have any other major operation to undertake, sources said. Those who had been causing turmoil there have conveniently forgotten the previous government moved vehicle offloading operations to Hambantota from Colombo to give it an opportunity to generate revenue.

A senior navy official told The Island that additional strength had to be called from Galle in support of Hambantota navy detachment to regain control of the harbour. Elite Special Boat Squadron (SBS) personnel specialising in anti-ship-jacking operations were brought in to carry out the operation. "The restoration of power and clearing of various obstacles took hours," the official said, adding that technical teams to operate gantry cranes and tug crews had also been brought in.

The official alleged that striking workers had placed obstacles in waters to prevent the vessel leaving. Heavily armed navy personnel landed on pier while several craft positioned close to the Japanese vessel.

During tense standoff at the harbour, SLN personnel fired in the air to clear those who opposed their intervention.

Navy Commander Vice Admiral Ravi Wijegunaratne in civvies accompanied the troops deployed for the mission. In accordance with international law governing port security, Commander of the Navy functions as the Competent Authority of International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) code, a mechanism put in place by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

The Joint Opposition (JO) strongly condemned the deployment of the navy at the Hambantota port. JO members, both in Parliament and outside accused the navy of mercilessly attacking workers. Vice Admiral Wijegunaratne has been accused of pushing a Hiru correspondent Roshan Gunasekara covering the naval intervention.

K Line and the vessel’s Bulgarian and Filipino crew have thanked the Navy for securing the vessel’s release without any damage or casualties. ABC shipping said that K Line appreciated the action taken in the wake of hostage situation.

Latest voting in parliament shows 2/3rd majority in getting the budget passed. This president was duly elected in Jan' 2015  Govt was elected to office in 2015 (Both not even 2 years)

Next elections are due in 2020. Why worry about this type of strikers. President/ PM elected for 22 million people in the country. They should safeguard the rights of those people who democratically elected them to power.
In Srilanka Govt employees are totaling to less than 1.4 million. Private sector more than 6 mln. Some of these govt. employees think administrations should listen to them always. They think Govt. is belong to them. In private sector if the owner wants to sell the company to another, employees do not go on strike. Keeping the company or selling the company is a decision of the owner. How come that Govt. employees think otherwise.
Anyway govt. should safeguard the rights of others in the country. Why can't President/PM say that they were elected to rule the country the way they want and ban all strikes in order to develop the country and safeguard the rights of almost 95% of srilankan. Even if you take 3 dependents for 1 employee total govt employees and their dependents will be 4.2 mln which is less than 20% of the total in Srilanka. Should the govt. allow them to cripple the country. Why cant the president/PM take decisions for the 80%.

Enough is enough. Singapore /Malaysia both were developed by Mr. Lee and Mahatheer Mohamed because they were able to give proper leadership. They did not allow people to go against them. Please be strict. Ban all strikes on behalf of the majority.

The difference is  not with the people man. It is the leaders.
You can't compare our low IQ yamapalanayas with grate Mahatheer or Lee kuan   .

You can't even think such a thing man.  Entire system is run by government servants.

The most foolish act did by current inexperience rulers is they tried to manipulate or control this  system from outside, being outsiders.

If you want to manipulate or control a  system , first you have to become a part of that system. Unless,  the system will attack you. Because it is more powerful.
That has happened in Sri Lanka during past 2 years.

The present leaders are still running imaginary fight with  Mahinda Rajapaksa. He has to do nothing but watching.  
The system is firing back .  They and the system are not in same track and setting apart day by day.

Lee & Mahathir did not shower perks & money on Parliamentarians to run their countries. Here once the goodies to MPs are stopped, it will be like pulling the plug off the life support machine on which this Govt is kept alive.

The economy is mismanaged and in ruins. The share market is totally screwed and f----ed up. What more people want to see.
Hold an election and see what the result would be. The yahapalana has to poke the tail into something and run.

Within 2years they have broken world records in corruption. What more to see.

We are now talking about perks because recently PM wanted to increase meeting attendance fees for MPS and wanted to give 100,000/- for each MP.

Todays papers say resolution was passed in parliament. I don't think any MP was against it. Rather than saying additional perks we can just work it out as follows.

Additional 2000/- per sitting * 225 Mps* 10 days per month.

Rs. 4,500,000 

Rs. 100,000/- per MP * 225 MPS= Rs. 22,500,000/-
This is intended to spend for the electorate. Hope presently they spend for the weddings and funerals. New allowance is like a reimbursement by the Govt.

New perks are going to cost the country Rs. 27,000,000/- per month.

look at the armed forces salary bill per month.
take the total as 500,000 in the forces and @Rs. 50,000/- average
Total will be Rs. 25,000,000,000/- (25Bln) per month
Do we need such a big force now. What do the other countries do after the wars are over. Think about those.

Mps additional perks is just 0.1% of the salary bill of the forces.

Therefore I suggest without just discrediting the Govt. show these in Rs. and cents.

Workers have the right to raise their voice against any kind of injustice falls on them. But damaging the state property & unruly behavior always defames the country's image. It is open secret that many opportunists hanging behind the curtain are fueling such situation.
