Robberies & Piracy

03-03-2010 Eleven pirates in three skiffs armed with guns and rocket-propelled grenades hijacked the vessel taking 16 crew members hostage. They threatened to injure or kill the crew if their instructions were not followed. The main intention of the pirates was to use the fishing vessel to hijack another vessel. The pirates stole crew cash and personal belongings and sailed the vessel with the skiffs in tow. On 05/03/2010, 12 crew members were transferred onto a hijacked chemical tanker while the remaining four crew were still held on board. The crew and the vessel were released on 19/07/2010 after a ransom was paid. Vessel arrived at Mombasa on 24/07/2010
