...Mr Polye's letter, dated November 22, said Hamish Sharp, the head of Bismark Maritime Ltd, had been chosen to join the board of directors and to head the authority, which controls the maritime industry safety standards.
It claimed the appointment of Mr Hamish Sharp
involved a conflict of interest because the Lae businessman had two legal cases against the NMSA.One is an application for a judicial review of the NMSA's order to remove the Sealark wreck from the Lae Harbour. The Sealark, owned by Mr Sharp's company
, caught fire and sank in Lae waters early last year.In the second case, Mr Sharp
is claiming damages from an employee of the authority for alleged defamation in April last year following the authority's investigation into the Sealark. Mr Rupen told the chamber that Hamish Sharp
travelled to Madang early this month to inspect the NMSA navigational aids tender vessel, the Kulasi, and the navigational aids depot and equipment.
