TownGuy, I talked to Cornelius a few months back. He is in Very bad health. If you want, I can pass your information on to him.

Aquanut,
You mentioned four years ago that you were in contact with Cornelius, is he still in poor health? Is this thread still read at all?

If anyone is still interested in researching the wreck or potentially going after the wreck itself, contact me.

The last time I talked to him was last July. He said he was making his last trip from Holland to California to see one of his daughters. He doesn't think he'll be around much longer. Going after the wreck would be a dangerous proposition.

Sorry to say but I was on that project and you've got it all wrong. The Singapore firm was actually, Southeast Asia Salvage, and we never actually found the Flor do Mar. It was just a 'ploy' by Robert Marx to announce that we did find it because he was under tremendous pressure by Tjetty (our Indonesian partner/financier/boss) because we were totally out of funds and they thought that announcing that we found it would make it easy to raise more funds - in the end the heavy hitters (Indonesian funders) didn't buy it so it didn't even work at all and all our funding dried up - thus abruptly ending the project.

Quote:Posted by bobw63
From the Singapore Journal of International Law - 1998 -

"The Flor de la Mar shipwreck and its cargo then emerged as the focus
of an intense ownership dispute between the Indonesian and Malaysian
governments. In 1989, the Indonesian government gave consent to a Singapore
salvage firm to search for the Flor de la Mar shipwreck and its treasure.
A year later, the salvage firm found the shipwreck, including its cargo,
within Indonesian waters in the Malacca Strait. Malaysia claimed the
shipwreck’s treasure from the Indonesian government, claiming it as the
property of the Sultanate of Malacca. According to the Republika newspaper
(18 March 1993), the issue would possibly be referred to the International
Court of Justice by Malaysia, as Malaysia felt that the Indonesian government
had not been responsive to its claim over the treasure. However, the
International Court of Justice has yet to receive a claim by Malaysia with
regard to this issue. Hence, the dispute between the Indonesian and Malaysian
governments remains unsettled."
