MOSCOW, July 9 (Itar-Tass) - A Nigerian court has postponed hearings on the case of seven Russian seamen, the crew members of the Myre Seadiver ship, who are accused of smuggling weapons to October 9, a spokesman for the Moscow office of Moran Security Group, the ship’s owner, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
According to the spokesman, the trial was adjourned because the judges are going on vacations till the end of September.
In October 2012, the Nigerian authorities detained the ship Myre Seadiver owned by the company Moran Security Group, which provides the services of armed escort for commercial cargoes in pirate-prone areas of the world’s oceans, at the port of the city Lagos under the pretext of allegedly incorrectly declared firearms onboard the ship. The crew of 15 Russian sailors was arrested. On February 25, the Federal Court of Lagos upheld the appeal filed by the Russian embassy in Nigeria for a release of the 15 Russian sailors against its guarantees. On June 18, charges against eight crewmembers were dropped.
