(UTV|COLOMBO) – An infamous cargo ship once filled with asylum seekers has been dismantled on Nanaimo’s waterfront, East coast of Vancouver Island, in British Columbia – Canada, and trucked away.

Canadian Maritime Engineering stated that the Sri Lanka-based MV Sun Sea has been disassembled and removed from the former Nanaimo Shipyard property.

The 770-tonne ship had 492 asylum seekers aboard when it was intercepted by Canadian Naval Authorities and towed to Esquimalt in August 2010.

It has since been in Nanaimo and CME began disposing of the derelict vessel in October after securing a $4.1-contract from the Federal Government.
