Following the increasing number of inquiries from persons concerned regarding the inspection procedure and issued prohibition of use of the maritime domain to previous illegal operators of special purpose seaports in the Krvavice area, the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure hereby notifies all owners of vessels moored in the port, as well as all the public concerned on the following:
Maritime domain inspector has issued prohibition of use of the maritime domain to illegal operators of special purpose seaport in the Krvavice area, which was made on the spot by sealing their business premises and port facilities (crane), and he did not close the port.
All owners of vessels moored in the port, can freely access their vessel, set sail again and sail into the port without any restrictions.
The company Ramova d.o.o. has the possibility of submitting a proposal for the temporary removal of the seal of the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure, in particular, the Maritime Safety Directorate, and temporary work permits for crane for the purpose of lowering vessels into the sea. In case of submitting such proposal, the maritime domain inspector will decide with the conclusion which will determine the day of his fieldwork and temporarily remove the seal from port equipment, after which he will reapply the seal and write an official report.
In the respect of liability for possible damage to the vessel owners stemming from the port ban, they should refer to the regulation article 673.lj of Maritime act, which prescribes that service provider of the moorings in the sea or maritime domain must have valid legal basis for providing the service of mooring in accordance with positive regulations on maritime domain and sea ports and for providing services in nautical tourism.
If the service provider of such services does not hold the appropriate legal basis, he is held responsible for the possible damage that occurs for the mooring users or third parties regarding the mooring contract. The mooring user has the right for compensation and unilateral termination of that contract.
