Cooks shipping decision retracted

2:38 pm on 19 September 2005

The Cook Islands government has retracted information about the Pacific Forum Line shipping company.

The newspaper, the Cook Islands News, had reported that cabinet had unanimously decided to revoke the PFL's shipping licence.

But the government now says cabinet had unanimously agreed to grant the shipping line a licence renewal.

The news item reportedly caused concern to the company's stakeholders.

It is not clear what caused the confusion.
