MOSCOW, January 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Norway may release arrested Russian trawler Novoazovsk within a day after the police check the vessel, the public relations centre of Russia’s fishery agency told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
Norwegian police will check fishing equipment of the ship and ship’s logs on Tuesday.
“In fact, such cases are settled within a day. If Arkhangelsk trawler fleet presents a bank guarantee quickly enough, the ship can resume fishing already tomorrow and court proceedings will continue in a Norwegian court,” the public relations centre said.
Norwegian coast guard proposed to Novoazovsk captain to avoid convoying to Norwegian port Tromso, providing the collateral right at the spot, and to keep fishing, but he refused to do so, Russia’s fishery agency said.
