We’d like to request our readers to sign the online petition for the installation of CCTV cameras on the outside decks of passenger vessels. Click here. The petition was launched by Marianne Fearnside, whose 30-year-old son went missing in May 2013 on board a ferry sailing from Calais, France, to Dover, England. No enquiry was ever made in the absence of surveillance camera footage. Similar cases of mysterious disappearances have been reported over the years in the UK, the US and other countries.
