MOSCOW, January 07, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian diplomats and the Senegalese authorities will start talks on release of the seized Russian fishing trawler, the Oleg Naidenov, on Tuesday evening, a spokesman for the Russian federal fisheries agency, Rosrybolovstvo, Alexander Savelyev, told Itar-Tass.
“The talks will begin in Dakar late on Tuesday by Moscow time,” he said.
The trawler can be freed after the meeting of Russian diplomats, Rosrybolovstvo officials with Senegalese President Macky Sall, Savelyev said.
He emphasized Dakar’s constructive attitude to the situation with the arrest of the Russian trawler.
The Oleg Naidenov suspected of illegal fishing within Senegalese waters was seized by the Senegalese military 46 miles of Guinea-Bissau on Saturday with 82 crew onboard, including 62 Russians and 20 citizens of Guinea-Bissau, and convoyed to the port of Dakar on Sunday. During the seizure several sailors were injured.
The Oleg Naidenov is owned by private company Fenix, registered in Murmansk, the extreme northwest part of Russia. It is a big fishing boat of Moonzund type, 120 meters long, built in Germany in 1989.
The crew remains on board the vessel under control of the Senegalese law enforcers. Sailors’ passports were confiscated after the trawler’s arrest. Among those detained are three women.
