I fear that it will be a very long time indeed before any arrests are made,this tragic loss of life concerns a government owned ship,I don't think that there is any dispute about that,the problem is that it is owned by the government which means politicans getting involved more than they would do if the ship had private owners.Governments talking to governments, politicians talking to politicians,there is not going to be quick resolution to this very sad affair.

Senegalese legal officials said the judge had abused his authority.
