Goundar Shipping Limited claims to have closed down operations from yesterday.
The company made the announcement on its Facebook page alleging double standards as the reason.
The post which was later deleted is now circulating on social media.
It says after 10-years of service, it is no longer going to provide any further services, citing issues with the Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji and the Ministry for transport as a factor in the decision.
FBC News contacted owner George Goundar who said he has no comments and referred us to MSAF.
The company was recently embroiled in allegations of human trafficking and workers’ rights violations.
Goundar Shipping operates five vessels, servicing the maritime islands.
