ARCHANGELSK, February 4. /TASS/. Alexander Matvienko, the master of the Russian bulk carrier Ivan Bobrov arrested in Denmark for higher alcohol concentration in blood, was deported to Russia, Commercial Director of Trans-NAO company - ship owner Svetlana Zelentsova told TASS on Thursday.
"Matvienko arrived at Russia and is currently in Moscow. He already contacted his spouse," Zelentsova said.
The company has not decided yet whether to call Matvienko to disciplinary liability. The decision will be made after the general director meets the shipmaster.
The bulk carrier Ivan Bobrov (home port - the Russian northern port of Arkhangelsk) went from the British port of Ipswich to Latvia’s Riga to be loaded with sawn timber. The Danish coastal rescue officers suspected that the crew might be drunk. Arriving at the ship, the police breath tested the nine crew members. The tests showed the master, his mate and ship’s engineer had concentration of alcohol in blood above the permitted limit for sailors according to Danish laws. The three crew members were arrested and the ship anchored at the Elsinore port. The mate and the ship’s engineer were later deported to Russia on January 21.
The new command staff arrived on January 7. The ship sailed away from the Danish port on January 9 and continued the halted voyage to Riga.
