Erik Witjens, criminal defence attorney with RMSC member De Reede Advocatuur B.V. has compiled a special RMSC Expert Overview on this topic. The overview is based on an article he published in the Journal of International Maritime Law (2022) vol 28: ‘Criminal liability based on European Regulations for ship recycling in South Asia: dead in the water?’
