OP­PO­SI­TION MP Aseri Radro­dro yes­ter­day sug­gested in Par­lia­ment that funds from COP23 or a por­tion of the plas­tic bag tax be col­lected and used in re­mov­ing the sunken con­tainer ship MV South­ern Phoenix that cap­sized in Suva Har­bour in May this year. Mr Radro­dro said he was most dis­ap­pointed with how in­ad­e­quately the Mar­itime Safety Author­ity of Fiji had been per­form­ing its du­ties, es­pe­cially in en­sur­ing the safety of those who make a liv­ing out of Fiji wa­ters, for trav­el­ling and for those that rely on it for daily sus­te­nance. “The con­tainer ship that cap­sized and re- mains in the Suva Har­bour is an eye­sore and no doubt a health and safety haz­ard,” he said.
