Detained Greek Freighter Forced to Unload Cargo
BY HENRY LEONARD
JERUSALEM, (JTA) — The
Greek freighter, the Astypalea,
detained by the United Arab
Republic at Port Said since last
Dec. 17, will unload its Israeli
cargo next week, informed
sources predicted here.
The vessel, carrying 400 tons
of cement for East Africa, f.o.b.,
Haifa, was halted at Port Said
despite an understanding re-
portedly reached with UAR
President Nasser by United
Nations Secretary General Dag
Hammarskj old. Under that
agreement, the UAR promised
to permit unhampered Suez
Canal transit of foreign ships
carrying Israeli cargo title to
which had passed to the non-
Israeli purchaser before the
ship entered the canal. The
f.o.b. transaction was arranged
for that purpose.
With the charter of the Asty-
palea expiring and the Egyptian
port authorities adamant in
their refusal to permit transit,
the ship will have to unload
the cement, it was indicated.
Best Deal! Best Service!
