Nov 17, 2023
In this episode, Sal Mercogliano - maritime historian at Campbell University (@campbelledu) and former merchant mariner - discusses the highjacking of the UK-insured, Isle of Man-registered owned, Greek-managed, and Bahamian-flagged pure car and truck carrier Galaxy Leader by Iranian-backed Houthi-rebels in the Red Sea. He also addresses the Israeli connection as the beneficial owner of Galaxy Leader through Ray Carriers in Tel Aviv.
