MOSCOW, January 05, 14:30 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian diplomats in Dakar (Senegal) have arrived at the port where the Russian trawler Oleg Naydenov detained by Senegalese military is moored, a Russian Embassy source told Tass.
“Russian diplomats are in the port, looking into the situation with the trawler’s detention,” the source said. The trawler was on Saturday detained by Senegalese military 46 miles off Guinea Bissau. Then it was convoyed to Dakar, arriving there overnight to Sunday. There has been no official information from the Senegalese authorities as to the reason behind the incident as of yet.
According to the Russian Federal Fishery Agency, there are 82 people on board - 62 Russian nationals and 20 citizens of Guinea Bissau.
The trawler belongs to the closed joint stock company Feniks registered in Murmansk, northern Russia. The Oleg Naydenov is a large factory trawler, 120 metres long. It was built in Germany in 1989 and received its current name in 2005 in honour of Murmansk’s first mayor.
