MOSCOW, January 07, 22:55 /ITAR-TASS/. A representative from the Russian fisheries agency, Alexander Biryukov, has arrived in the port of Dakar to escort the captain of the Russian fishing trawler Oleg Naidenov, which was seized by the Senegalese military on Sunday, to a doctor, a spokesman for the agency told Itar-Tass laet on Tuesday.
The captain, Vadim Mantorov, complained of kidney ache after the Senegalese military used force while seizing the trawler. “The Senegalese president has satisfied the request of the head of the Russian fisheries agency, Andrei Krainy, to provide medical aid to the Naidenov crew,” the spokesman said.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Russian side said it wanted to have members of the Oleg Naidenov crew, who were injured during the arrested, to be examined by a doctor it trusted.
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.
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.
Later on Tuesday, a Russian delegation is expected to meet with the Senegalese authorities over the ship’s fate.
