By Kamlesh Bhuckory (Bloomberg)– Mauritius declined an application for bond made by Sunil Kumar Nandeshwar, the captain of the MV Wakashio that sunk off its southeastern shore in July.

The mass service provider, possessed by Nagashiki Shipping Co., was en course to Brazil from China when it ran marooned and also splashed oil, creating the tourist-dependent Indian Ocean island country’s greatest ecological catastrophe.

“Given that the applicant may be charged with a serious offense and if found guilty a severe penalty may be imposed on him by the trial court, I am of the view that the risk to interfere with witnesses and the risk of absconding are real and plausible,” Acting Senior District Magistrate Neeshal K. Jugnauth stated in Port Louis, the resources, on Tuesday.

Nandeshwar is provisionally billed with “unlawful interference with the operation of a property of a ship likely to endanger its safe navigation,” according to court papers.
