OPPOSITION MP Aseri Radrodro yesterday suggested in Parliament that funds from COP23 or a portion of the plastic bag tax be collected and used in removing the sunken container ship MV Southern Phoenix that capsized in Suva Harbour in May this year.

Mr Radrodro said he was most disappointed with how inadequately the Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji had been performing its duties, especially in ensuring the safety of those who make a living out of Fiji waters, for travelling and for those that rely on it for daily sustenance.

"The container ship that capsized and remains in the Suva Harbour is an eyesore and no doubt a health and safety hazard," he said.
