Turkish freighter, probably Ayder, arrested by Georgian authorities, Black sea

March 22, 2013 at 01:13 by Mikhail Voytenko in Accidents

Russian media reported the arrest of Turkish cargo vessel named Aydar, claiming vessel was arrested in international waters by Georgian Coast Guard. Vessel was en route from breakaway Georgian republic Abkhazia, which wasn’t recognized internationally, except Russia and probably, Venezuela. Georgian authorities arrest each vessel when they could, if they find that the vessel called Abkhazian ports. Vessel was arrested at night Mar 20 13 and taken to Poti, Georgia. Crew is 9, including 5 Azerbaijan nationalities, 2 Russia and 2 Ukraine. Vessel is said to be loaded with cargo of fishmeal and fish oil. There is no Turkish freighter under the name Aydar in the area, most probably, the name was misspelled. A Turkish freighter Ayder meets the description of the accident. Ayder’s last AIS signal was dated Mar 6, with Sochi named as next port of call. Most probably, vessel’s AIS was switched off to throw off track Georgian authorities, who’re monitoring all vessels calling Abkhazian waters. Maritime Bulletin http://www.news.odin.tc/
