Ships impounded in Dubai after undersea cable cuts

"Two ships have been impounded by Dubai authorities in relation to a series of submarine cable cuts which wreaked havoc on Indian and Middle Eastern service earlier this year.

It was confirmed yesterday that the Dubai Port Trust has impounded the MV Hounslow and MT Ann on suspicion of causing breakages to the Reliance Globalcom Flag Europe-Asia cable, which was damaged along with the SEA-ME-WE 4 and Falcon cables in early February.

An official from Reliance Globalcom said the company had given the details of the two ships to Dubai authorities after studying satellite imagery of ship movements around the breakage area, according to Indian newspaper The Hindu. “The matter has been brought to the notice of appropriate authorities which are taking necessary action,” the official said.

The owners and captains of the two ships are set to be questioned in Dubai over the incident.

I'm sure that if they question them hard enough they might find some underwater cable stuck to their shoes..
