I was blinded by work and my drive for achievement.” The world gasped in awe when I first showed the results of my research. I felt a national pride and tasted the
confidence that we Koreans could achieve things too,” he told a packed news conference.
The charges centred on the collection of human egg cells for his research and whether they were obtained voluntarily.
Dr Hwang apologised to the nation for ethical lapses in his work. He said he had not been truthful about the source of some of the eggs and had been too focused on results.
He said he was resigning from his official posts to show his contrition – but would continue as a researcher on the stem cell project.

The Conflicts Between Interest and Integrity


Case 1: Atlantic Eagle
Positions on the chart were falsified and log books and records were then completed in a manner aimed at ensuring consistency with the chart rather than being accurate, factual and indisputable as required.

Case 2: Alam Pintar
After the collision the master of Alam Pintar failed to report the collision and denied knowledge of the incident to authorities. On arrival at Hamburg, documents and records were found to have been falsified or destroyed.

Case 3: MV Rena
The master and navigating officer admitted making alterations after the grounding to the ship’s GPS log, its passage plan and its computer to mislead investigating authorities.
Case 4: Rickmers Dubai
The vessel hit a towed un-lit barge whilst navigating in the traffic separation scheme (TSS) off Dover in the early hours. Based on the report, lookout was not on the bridge. The bridge avigational watch alarm system (BNWAS) was switched-off. The
duty officer was listening to music on the bridge. he master was not informed about the accident neither nor the relieving officer even though vessel was instructed by the shore traffic services (VTS) to save their voyage data recorder (VDR) data. Second officer denied about hitting the barge. Hours later, vessel was instructed
to stop and anchor off the TSS for further investigations.

Learning is a fundamental survival mechanism ….. (The Human Element p 61). As a result, it is more – or less of a danger to everybody concerned, for without the right guidance, people learn the wrong things (The Human Element p 61).
The main purpose of maritime academies is to inculcate and instil values amongst its students: skills and competencies are next. Perhaps 80 percent of the time spent on campus should be on values and the remaining 20 percent on developing new
skills.
Shipping is customer-centric. The relationship amongst various stakeholders is based on trust. We expect people to be honest in discharging their duties at all times. It is imperative that we include values in one of the specification tables of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) Code, 1978
