The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has rejected the application for a exemption in order to insure HAVILA CAPELLA.

Earlier this Ministry had granted Havila Kystruten a exemption from the (Russian) sanctions regulations to operate HAVILA CAPELLA for 6 months.

The exemption did not entail any right to insure the ship and on Monday the Ministry of Foreign Affairs rejected the shipping company’s application to take out insurance on the grounds that being able to take out insurance in itself would mean that a property is made available to the registered owner.
