It is accused of having unloaded a number of containers in the sea off the coast of Gargano, in Puglia, Italy. According to the dossier "Affondamenti sospetti" (suspiscious sinkings) published by Italian environmental NGO Legambiente in 2009, it was one of the containers dumped by this ship which caused the fishing boat Orca Marina to capsize on March 8th 1998, before sinking 8 miles off the coast of Gargano in Puglia, Southern italy. The young fisher Cosimo Traiano died as a consequence of the incident.
