Egypt seizes Ever Given megaship in Suez April 13, 2021 Maritime data company Lloyd's List said the blockage by the EverGiven held up an estimated $9.6 billion-worth of cargo between Asia and Europe each day it was stuck.
Standard, common, reoccurring practice in Maritime Law is to seize any vessel with outstanding debts. Everybody overcharges and then settles. Instead of suing the owners of the ship, Egypt just slapped ship with a prejudgement arrest order.

Who will attend that auction?
