MURMANSK, January 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s trawler “Oleg Naidenov” ship owner said he had succeeded in getting one of the sailors, who had signs of heart attack, to home.
The problem has been solved positively despite the fact that Senegalese guards banned anyone of the crewmembers to leave the trawler, the ship owner’s executive director, Yuri Parshev, told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The captain’s mate was also sent home. A specialist, who will replace him, was unable to board the trawler and accommodated at a hotel, Parshev said, adding that now the specialist was aboard the trawler.
No one can even get in the pier although the Senegalese authorities pledged the ship owner to allow Russian injured crewmembers to go ashore because independent medics, who had visited the trawler, noted injuries, the executive director said.
He added that the situation aboard the trawler was normal.
The trawler Oleg Naidenov was detained off Guinea Bissau on January 4 for suspected illegal fishing, Lieutenant-Colonel Adama Diop, from the public relations office at the Senegalese Army, said last week.There were 82 persons aboard the ship — 62 Russians and 20 citizens of Guinea Bissau. The trawler was procuring fish off that African country under an inter-governmental agreement, which requires Russian sailors to take locals aboard for training and work.
The trawler belongs to the closed joint stock company Feniks registered in Murmansk, northern Russia.
Parshev noted that the Senegalese authorities had repeatedly accused Russian ships of breaching fishing rules and imposed fines upon them, including the Oleg Naidenov.
Its owner, senior officials of the Federal Fisheries Agency, the Russian Foreign Ministry, Defense Ministry, Emergencies Ministry and other relevant organizations have been notified about the incident.
The Oleg Naidenov is a large factory trawler, 120 meters long. It was built in Germany in 1989 and received its current name in 2005 in honor of Murmansk’s first mayor.
