The shipping line which owns the freight ship Rena, which foundered near New Zealand in October, has been charged with the discharge of harmful substance from ships. The stern of the Rena sank in high seas this week, and further debris on the country’s east coast beaches will necessitate more cleaning operations.

Maritime New Zealand said it had charged Daina Shipping under two sections of New Zealand’s Resource Management Act. The charge carries a maximum fine of NZ$600,000 (US$489,000) plus NZ$10,000 for every day the offence continues.
