A Faroese skipper is set to appear in Lerwick Sheriff Court in January after his case was continued without plea at the court today.
Sheriff Philip Mann agreed to continue the case without plea and extend bail for Pall Klein Rasmussen, 56, who faces two charges under EU regulations relating to the chemical processing of fish and a second alleging that fish had not been immediately frozen after grading.
Mr Rasmussen’s vessel Christian I Grotinum was escorted into Lerwick on 9th November by the fishery protection vessel Hirta. Mr Rasmussen was excused attending the court yesterday. His case will continue on 6th January.
