Goundar Shipping Limited has installed CCTV Cameras in all its four vessels – Lomaiviti Princess I, Lomaiviti Princess II, Lomaiviti Princess III and Lomaiviti Princess IV.

Company managing director, George Goundar, said the installation of cameras was done by Gateway Electronic Limited.

“I wish to thank Gateway Electronic Limited for the wonderful work it has done,” he said.

Speaking to SunShipping yesterday, Mr Goundar said the installation cost was $100,000.

He said the installation of CCTV Cameras “is to protect the passengers’ cargo from missing or stolen.”

According to Mr Goundar passengers had been claiming their cargo missing and the installation of cameras have reduced such the claims to 90 percent.

The reduction he said was good for the company and the passengers.

However he said in most cases passengers had lied, and added that they should lodge their complaints about their missing cargo the same day to shipping operators, rather than waiting for another one or two months.

Passengers he said were the ones who had been stealing from the boat.

He said it was a company policy, that whenever passengers complained about their missing cargo, they were brought to their office and review records they had.

Meanwhile, he said all forgotten cargo, are well kept in their warehouse at Walu Bay.

He urged the passengers concerned to visit their warehouse to check for their missing cargo.

The FijiSun visited the warehouse and witnessed that the cargoes were well kept.

Cargo he said would be disposed after one month in the warehouse if not claimed.
