AUSTRALIA'S director of quarantine has completed an unprecedented personal
examination of thousands of sheep aboard a controversial livestock carrier
which had been due to leave Fremantle yesterday.

MV Al Kuwait, which has been at the centre of recent animal liberation
protests, was due to depart yesterday for Kuwait, but last-minute
government intervention held up its departure so an inspection could take
place.

Director of Quarantine Michael Taylor this morning inspected the sheep in
the company of veterinarians and quarantine officers, and the shipment was
expected to be cleared to leave later today.
