Chinese Freighter Hits Korean Vessel And Runs?

China maritime lawyers

Sixteen Korean sailors are still missing after their ship was apparently hit by a Chinese vessel a few days ago. The Chinese ship is accused of having fled the scene.

I have been enthralled by this story as it combines politics, morality, international maritime law, and the two Asian countries with whose martime laws and lawyers I have the greatest familiarity. Eyes East [link no longer exists] out of Dalian (the incident occurred off Dalian’s coast) is doing an excellent job at covering the story and I urge those with an interest in it to check in over there to stay up to date.  Its most recent post is entitled, Did the Chinese Freighter Hit & Run?

    Actually, it seems to me that every time there is an accident in China, the drivers get out and argue for a couple of hours. I have been in two car accidents in China and that is certainly what happened both times.

  2. Exactly the same with domestic drivers?? Seems that our unscrupulous fellowmen have shamed our country again on the international stage.
    Deep Sigh….

    Only when there is a question of fault, often at intersections. If a driver knows that they screwed up, they take off.

    Not really, I just think something like this and the Olympics are important to better understanding where China is and will be going and so I run these, but usually by referring our readers to those better able to handle these issues.
