This illegal migrant ship was recently was seized by CDN. Authorities off of Canada's West Coast and now is in Victoria, B.C. It has the name as above hastily stenciled on it. The IMO: 7732349 is also
stenciled. It is believed it came from the SRI LANKA region and has
chinese lettering under the present name. Whoever gets this one should also contact the Canadian Authorities. I haven't heard if they truly idenified it yet as it just arrived on Oct. 17, 2009. So the name of this ship and IMO # are fictious. Can u help?

After a stop in Mumbai on Aug. 31, the Princess Easwary sailed from the northwest Indian port of Mundra on Sept. 8.

Registered in Cambodia, the Princess Easwary visited ports in Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan and the Philippines in 2008, according to Lloyds.

The company listed as the ship's owner does not appear to exist. Ray Ocean Transport Corp., registered in the Seychelles, owns the vessel.

Operated by Sunship Maritime Services.

Both companies share an address in Cebu, Philippines, but the telephones appear to be out of service and emails sent to Sunship were returned as undeliverable.

The Princess Easwary is the only ship operated by the companies.

So far, one has been identified as a 26-year-old Kartheepan Manickavasagar who is wanted by Sri Lanka for terrorism. His name appears on an Interpol wanted notice.

A sad and curious story. She looks like a Japanese built coaster and I'll hazard a guess that the original characters visible under the paint are Japanese, not Chinese. Though I could be wrong.
