Precious Shipping

Thai shipping company Precious Shipping is known to transport phosphates from occupied El Aaiún to the port of Barranquilla, Colombia. WSRW has monitored four Precious Shipping transports the stolen goods to Colombia in 2 years.

Its vessel Dusita Narree (IMO 9127071) has completed several transport to Colombia;
On 2 April 2011 it discharged of 12.600 tonnes phosphate rock from occupied Western Sahara
On 7 September 2009 and 26 August 2010 with 13.500 tonnes of phosphates.

Also the vessel Apisara Naree, of the same fleet, did a shipment of 12.600 tonnes in March 2009.

"We wish to inform you that the cargo on board your vessels has been illegally sold and that its carriage by sea to a Colombian port is contrary to international law, and that the transports are highly unethical", stated WSRW in a letter to Previous Shipping 22 November 2010, urging the firm to halt future transports until the conflict is solved. The letter remains unanswered.
