that we were unsure whether the Key Bay would contain fish oil upon arrival in Belgium. This has now been clarified.
Port authorities in Belgium have confirmed to Western Sahara Resource Watch that the vessel contains no cargo when it is set to arrive tomorrow evening at 6pm local time. The vessel will anchor in Ghent to load.
This means that the entire consignment of fish oil from Western Sahara was offloaded in the port of Fécamp, France. The probable importer, Olvea, has refused to answer questions from media and civil society groups.
