Christopher de Souza on High Court (Admiralty Jurisdiction) (Amendment) Bill

(Updated: )

Allowing companies to make special compensation claims for salvage operations in Singapore’s High Court will encourage ships at sea to help fellow ships in distress to reduce environmental damage within the seas and oceans, said MP Christopher de Souza. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (May 26), he said the High Court (Admiralty Jurisdiction) (Amendment) Bill will strengthen Singapore as a maritime dispute resolution hub and a key maritime capital in the world. He wanted to know how special compensation might bring about a better marine environment near Singapore’s shores.
