The Cambodian shipping register rescinded hundreds of so-called flags of convenience vessels last month. In doing so, it began to draw the curtains on 22 years of arms trading, drug smuggling, human trafficking, sanctions violations, embargo busting and unsafe practices. The Cambodian Shipping Corporation was established by the government in 1994 and, according to a Ministry of Public Works and Transport website, “began immediately flagging ships of other nations”. There is a list of shame, and one abandoned vessel is the cargo ship "Tallas" floating inert off the coast of Turkey since August 2015.
