Chinese bulk carrier arrested in Singapore

The Chinese-flagged bulk carrier Rui Ning 1 was detained in Singapore, most likely due to unresolved payments, the latest records from Singapore’s Supreme Court show.

The 2001-built vessel was arrested on March 24 following instructions from a local law company Oon & Bazul LLP.

Managed by Shanghai Leading Energy Shipping, the 52,394-dwt bulker is currently moored off Singapore’s East Coast, according to AIS data.

The exact reason behind the arrest remains unconfirmed.

Focal Investigation & Security Agency Pte Ltd has been appointed for security and investigation purposes related to the matter.
