Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

tis Ti­nou pas­sen­ger ship is towed out of Pi­raeus port yes­ter­day, on its way to a de­mo­li­tion yard in neigh­bor­ing Turkey. The ship, con­fis­cated by the Sea­far­ers’ Pen­sion Fund (NAT) from its own­ers due to debts, had been stranded, and par­tially sunk, since last April when it started to take in wa­ter and was list­ing 40 de­grees to star­board. Even though port au­thor­i­ties were keen to re­move the ship from the port, ef­forts were bogged down by red tape, and sal­vage work only be­gan in earnest three months ago.
