ICV Update

Media and Legislative Update

May 20, 2011

 

 

SAMMAMISH, WASHINGTON.  The message of International Cruise Victims has been carried around the world through various media.  Last week, Fox TV in Los Angeles ran an excellent show featuring ICV members. The report concentrated on the issue of health care received on cruise ships.  While this has also been posted on our website, those who have not viewed this excellent news item, can see it by clicking here. It has already been confirmed that this will air in other cities around the country.

 

Mark your calendars for a full-hour show on May 23rd.  This show will feature the story of Amy Bradley. Amy disappeared during a stop on a cruise ship on March 24, 1998. There have been reported sightings of Amy over the years, and this show will further explore her disappearance. (The show will air at 10:00p.m. EST on the Lifetime Network.  The program is hosted by Beth Holloway and is called Vanished.  Check your local listings to find the show in your area.)

 

Ron and Iva Bradley have never given up the hope of finding their daughter. Iva has been a board member for ICV since the very beginning, and is currently in charge of keeping track of our continuously growing membership lists.  So many of our members who have lost loved ones have never given up hope of someday learning what happened to them or, better yet, seeing them again. Two of our newest members from England, Mike and Ann Coriam, parents of Rebecca Coriam, are today trying to find answers as to what happened to their daughter.  A most recent article just posted on the ICV website concerning this new missing person case can be found at the following:

On the legislative side, ICV members have testified before two committees of the California Assembly.  The hearings were held on May 3rd and May 18th.  So far, we continue to move forward.  At this point in time, we are most hopeful that this progress will continue and AB 1060, (Crimes of Violence - Crimes at Sea), a bill to protect passengers, will pass in the Assembly during the first week in June. Assuming things stay on track, we will then move on to the Senate for more hearings and final approval.

 

Week after week, we continue to hear from new victims.  These include victims of rape, assaults, sub-standard medical care, and the families of victims who have disappeared, or even been murdered. ICV was formed to provide a place for these victims to receive support.  In addition, however, ICV has taken a very proactive approach to putting in place the laws necessary to protect passengers.  This is not an easy task, but through our members working together, great progress has been made around the world.

 

The various talents of the membership include lobbying, supporting victims, and changing an industry. These talents put together represent an enviable model for any organization.  

 

As always, your donations are essential as we continue down this road. Take a minute to make your contribution which will allow us to continue to make a difference.
