RABAT, April 10 (Itar-Tass) - The Federal Court in the Nigerian city Lagos ruled to postpone the court hearings in the criminal case against 15 Russian crewmen of the ship Myre Seadiver, which the company Moran Security Group owns, to April 30, the Russian Embassy in Nigeria told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“As the motives for the postponement the court noted the need for an additional study of the materials provided by the detectives,” the embassy said.
The Russian sailors were detained by the Nigerian law enforcement agencies more than four months ago on October 19, 2012, when the authorities of that country detained the ship at the port of the city Lagos under the pretext of the allegedly illegally declared firearms onboard the ship.
On February 25, 2013, the Lagos Federal Court satisfied a petition from the Russian diplomats to release 15 sailors from the Nigerian prison on bail from the embassy. Since then they lived on the premises of the Russian Embassy in Lagos, waiting for a next court session.
“Russian sailors are feeling perfectly well, they are staying on the premises of the Russian Embassy in Lagos. Everything is perfect with them,” the Russian Embassy pledged to Itar-Tass.
