Spyros Minas demands that after piracy captivity crew I carried freight further, differently won't get paid peanuts.
The fueler with fuel who had to be suitable for "Ariana's" released on December 10 filling with 24 Ukrainians, is arrested by a coast guard of Kenya.
About it reports "Today" with reference to one of representatives of the shipowner Minas Spyros in Odessa
According to him, the Greek chartered "refueler" in Kenya. But during standard check the coast guard found small arms on a vessel and detained him. "Probably, seamen decided to be reinsured and took machine guns, being afraid of attack of pirates", - tells a source. Spyros refused to make comments on information. According to him, it paid fuel, and it have to deliver "Ariane".
The deputy of the Odessa City Council Svetlana Fabrikant who took part in negotiations on release of seamen, reported that earlier Spyros refused to change crew as to it offered, and our children to remove by helicopter for "Ariane" and to send home. According to the Greek, Ukrainians have to bring a vessel to port, differently it threatens not to pay to them kopeks. "The owner doesn't speak where the bulk ship will go. But to us he mentioned that wants that "Ariana" went to Iran with soy freight as it is necessary under the contract. If the crew refuses, the Greek won't begin to pay to them neither salaries in 7 months, nor compensations. And this sum, I think, it is proportional to that part of repayment which was paid by "Ariana's" owner to pirates", - one of relatives of our seamen reported yesterday. However, she refused to tell the name, being afraid of Spyros's anger.
Troubles happened and at pirates which 7 months held captive Ukrainians. When they ashore divided repayment of $2,8 million, between them there was a firefight. As transfers AFP, the passerby who tried to separate fighting robbers was lost.
