MOSCOW, January 09. /ITAR-TASS/. A French battle ship will deliver drinking water to Russia’s trawler, the Oleg Naidenov, seized in Senegalese waters, the public relations centre of the Russian federal fisheries agency, Rosrybolovstvo, told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The Russian side also agreed with the Senegalese authorities on removal of garbage from the arrested trawler. Garbage will be taken from the vessel by Senegal’s coastal services.
The crew of the trawler said earlier it was short of fresh water, but had enough food and medicines.
The Oleg Naidenov suspected of illegal fishing within Senegalese waters was seized by Senegalese servicemen 46 miles of Guinea-Bissau on January 4 with 82 crew onboard, including 62 Russians and 20 citizens of Guinea-Bissau, and convoyed to the port of Dakar on January 5. During the seizure several sailors were injured.
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 soon after the trawler’s arrest.
