MˇtmŠlisfˇlk stˇ­u fyri Thor Omega Ý Las Palmas
Dagur & Vika
18. mars 2009

═ trÝggjar mßna­ir hevur f°roysk frßlandavinna veri­ Ý sjˇ°kinum ˙t fyri hersetta Vestur-Sahara.

Tß Thor Omega Ý gjßr leg­i at bryggju Ý Las Palmas ß kanarisku oyggjunum, stˇ­u mˇtmŠlisfˇlk fyri skipinum.

Thor Omega virkar saman vi­ norska seismikkskipinum, Geo Caribbean, Ý einum hersettum °ki. ═ 2002 sta­festi ST, at oljuleiting Ý °kinum er Ý strÝ­ vi­ altjˇ­a fˇlkarŠtt. Somu st°­u hava bŠ­i norska og danska stjˇrnin, i­ mŠla sÝnum fyrit°kum um at halda seg burtur.

F°royska uttanrÝkisrß­i­ hevur tˇ valt ikki at taka n°kur stig hesum vi­vÝkjandi.

Norska Norwatch skrivar, at marokkanska hersetingarvaldi­ hevur bi­i­ sÝna hermegi um at verja f°royska og norska skipi­ mˇti frŠlsisr°rsluni Ý °kinum.

Samstundis er eitt anna­ kent skip sŠtt har ß lei­ini. Thor Fish, sum Ý fj°r var­ selt til eina fyrit°ku Ý Hetlandi, hevur seinastu dagarnar ligi­ tŠtt upp at Thor Omega.

Hans Andreas Joensen, stjˇri Ý Thor Offshore, hevur ongar vi­merkingar til mßli­. Hann vßttar fyri Degi og Viku, at Thor Omega framvegis virkar Ý hersetta °kinum, men vil ikki at upplřsa, hvussu leingi skipi­ skal vera har. Og hann vil heldur ikki at ˙tgreina, hvÝ fyrrverandi Thor Fish n˙ eisini er har ß lei­ini.

Marokko hersetti Vestur-Sahara fyri 33 ßrum sÝ­ani. ═ eini nřggjari frßgrei­ing, i­ var­ almannakunngj°rd leygardagin, vÝsir Amnesty International enn einafer­ ß ˇgvusligu brotini ß mannarŠttindi Ý °kinum.

Morocco occupies the major part of its neighbouring country, Western Sahara. Entering into business deals with Moroccan companies or authorities in the occupied territories gives an impression of political legitimacy to the occupation. It also gives job opportunities to Moroccan settlers and income to the Moroccan government. Western Sahara Resource Watch demands foreign companies leave Western Sahara until a solution to the conflict is found.
