MOSCOW, January 08, 3:12 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s arrested fishing trawler Oleg Naidenov, staying at Dakar port, is surrounded by armed soldiers and warships of Senegal, it is shown on video footage, made public by the Russian Federal Fisheries Agency (Rosrybolovstvo) on Wednesday.
The ship’s crew is still not allowed to come ashore, and the captain has not been provided with qualified medical care.
Rosbylovstvo had reported earlier that Senegalese authorities had not allowed the captain on the arrested fishing trawler to go ashore, despite their promise to provide high-technology medical aid to him.
“Rosrybolovostvo representative Aleksander Biryukov returned to the residence of the Russian ambassador alone,” the public relations centre of Rosrybolovstvo told Itar-Tass. Biryukov had previously arrived at Dakar port to escort Oleg Naidenov’s captain Vadim Mantorov to a medical examination, as he complained of kidney ache after Senegalese military used force during the seizure of the vessel.
The Senegalese side in the evening of January 7 gave consent to provide medical examination to the Russian sailor. Senegalese authorities did not explain why they refused to allow the captain to receive medical aid, but the Russian side hopes that the negotiations with Senegalese President Macky Sall would still take place in the coming hours.
