The video "Seafarers and the Criminal Law" was commissioned by the ITF, funded by the ITF Seafarer's Trust and produced by Seafarers Rights International. It aims to raise the awareness concerning the criminalisation of seafarers.

The film also provides practical guidance for seafarers on what to do if they are caught up in a maritime incident or accident. Further information on seafarers' rights is available on the website of SRI at
