PRETORIA, May 13 (Itar-Tass) - A Nigerian court on Monday postponed the trial of 15 Russian sailors, the crewmen from the ship Myre Seadiver, to June 18, the crew’s lawyer told Itar-Tass over the phone.
According to the lawyer, the court needs more time to study the materials of the case.
The sailors are staying at the Russian embassy in Lagos, he said and added that the men felt well.
The Russian sailors have been staying in Nigeria since October 19, 2012, when the authorities of that country detained the ship Myre Seadiver owned by the company Moran Security Group, which provides the services of armed escort for commercial cargoes in pirate-prone areas of the world’s oceans, at the port of the city Lagos under the pretext of allegedly incorrectly declared firearms onboard the ship. On February 25, the Federal Court of Lagos upheld the appeal filed by the Russian embassy in Nigeria for a release of the 15 Russian sailors against its guarantees. Since then, the men have been living on the territory of the Russian embassy.
