The 18,300 DWT bulkerĀ EagleĀ was arrested at 2:38 AM local time on October 10, according to Singapore court records. The firm was arrested on behalf of legal firm Rajah & Tann Singapore LLP.

The ship came to Singapore from China, according to AIS data from shipping intelligence firm VesselsValue. The vessel is being held at Singapore's Eastern Anchorage.
