SRI Releases New Film on Criminalization of Seafarers


Criminalization of Seafarers awareness

Raising awareness of the risks of seafarers facing criminal charges Seafarers’ Rights International (SRI) has released a short, informative film commissioned by the
International Transport Workers’ Federation aimed at raising awareness of the risks of seafarers facing criminal charges as a consequence of their professional activities, and
the actions they can take to protect themselves from unfair treatment.

Criminalization of Seafarers film

The “Criminalization of Seafarers” film highlights recent high profile prosecutions of masters and crews following maritime casualties, and draws on the results of the 2012
survey of seafarers conducted by SRI on facing criminal charges. Importantly with reference to the Guidelines on Fair Treatment of Seafarers in the Event of a Maritime Accident, jointly adopted by the IMO and the ILO in 2006, the film explains what seafarers can expect by way of fair treatment when they are detained by public authorities following a maritime accident, and it informs seafarers where they might get support and advice.

Deirdre Fitzpatrick, Executive Director of SRI commented “Despite the advances in safety in the industry, maritime casualties continue to happen and the consequences for seafarers are dire: their lives, liberty and professional certificates all being put at grave risk. The film highlights the fact that criminalization is a daily risk that seafarers need to be aware of, and that all stakeholders need to be sensitized to the unfairness of any attempt to scapegoat seafarers caught up in such incidents”

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
