Simon Leufstedt posted a topic in Green TalkTwo recently released videos ('>video 1 and '>video 2) seems to be showing a cruise ship employee throwing bags of garbage into the ocean. The videos were apparently filmed covertly by a former crewman aboard the Magnifica, a cruise ship owned by the Geneva-based company MSC Cruises. The dumping took place in Brazilian waters near a marine sanctuary. Besides the obvious environmental damage, the dumping is also a violation of international law. According to Jim Walker, blogger and maritime lawyer, the dumping of garbage bags is a common practice by cruise ships like this one.
