  • The Maritime Law Association of South Africa was established in February 1974 as a result of concern among maritime lawyers and the shipping industry that legislation in South Africa regulating maritime affairs did not appear to be keeping pace with developments elsewhere in the world.

Recovery of Captain Roy Martin – April 2011


Captain Roy Martin, a former chairperson of the Durban Chapter and member of the MLA’s Executive Committee, was involved in a very serious car accident on the 18th of September 2010. He was in a coma for about a month in ICU and then spent a considerable amount of time in the Entabeni Rehabilitation Unit. Roy has made steady progress and was able to join the Durban Chapter at the AGM on the 25th of January 2011. He is continuing work with a therapist and is improving on a daily basis.

The MLASA wishes Captain Roy Martin all the best in his recovery.
