Moran Security Group slated Nigeria in Myre Seadiver case

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Moscow/London:  March 20, 2013

Why doesn`t Nigeria implement IMO resolutions?

Spurious allegations and illicit detainment galvanize international support for the MV Myre Seadiver

In September 2012 Moscow-based crewmembers of the MV Myre Seadiver were conducting professional and legitimate counter-piracy operations along Africa’s western coast when, in October, their anchorage in Nigeria’s Port of Lagos took a fateful turn.

Ignoring the fact that all permits, licenses and clearances were in place, the Nigerian Navy captured the Master and crew of fifteen Russian sailors on the eve of their departure from the Port of Lagos.  Held for months in a bleak Lagos prison without charge or trial, until recently when they were falsely accused of “illegal entry into the country” and “arms smuggling”, the sailors are now threatened with life imprisonment by Nigerian prosecutors.
