Oil Dumping Conviction for Ship Captain Sets Precedent

"I think it is a very significant case, not only for Alaska and Alaskans but for enforcement of our environmental regulations and the preservation of our oceans. It doesn't only impact Alaska, but it impacts everywhere they travel." [Quote from Assistant U.S. Attorney, Kevin Feldis, after the captain of a South Korean�owned cargo ship accused by the Coast Guard of illegally dumping waste oil into the sea off Alaska pleaded guilty this week to falsifying records, obstructing justice, and witness tampering.]
