Much of the story behind the break-up of the Liberian flag’s managers and its former Greek representatives Captain Nikolaos Soutos and Alexandros Soutos remains untold, sources with insight into the relationship have told TradeWinds.

Father and son were recently ousted after 50 successive years as Liberia's honorary general consuls in Greece, the last 20 years as representatives of the Liberian International Ship and Corporate Registry (LISCR) under the name Legality Holdings.

Both LISCR and Legality Holdings won multiple court orders to keep background information under seal.
