MURMANSK, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian trawler Oleg Naidyonov cannot leave Senegal’s port Dakar yet. Formal procedures for receiving all required permits continue, executive director of the shipowner Yuri Parshev told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The trawler is moored at the military port that complicates settlement of formal issues. The ship should receive documents for departure, but we lack any documents for the entry in the port, as the trawler was brought to the port under military convoy. But I am almost sure that the ship will leave the port before the end of the day. Senegalese authorities confirmed the release of the ship from custody,” Parshev noted.
The official of the shipowner has earlier stated that Senegalese authorities had taken the decision to release the ship on bail and had voiced it officially on Tuesday, after that preparation to departure began. The Russian association of fishing companies fishing off West Africa, incorporating the shipowner of the trawler, has paid the bail.
Russia’s fishery officials named the sum of bail at one million dollars.
Senegalese military detained Russian trawler Oleg Naidyonov early in January, 46 nautical miles (85.2 kilometeres) off Guinea-Bissau.
Trawler Oleg Naidyonov belongs to closed joint stock company Feniks registered in the city of Murmansk, northern Russia.
The ship was carrying 61 Russians, mainly sailors from Murmansk Region, and 20 Guinea-Bissau citizens.
