    If this claim is paid by the ship owners, we hope it would be put to its actual use and not been swindled by our so called patriotic corrupt politicians!

    There is some hanky panky the way it was handled. We should have boarded the ship and impounded it until the claim was paid. Instead we out the fire, but allowed a company to board it and take away the ship. Whole thing shows either corruption or incompetence.
