Georgian sailors again cry for help

2011-01-10 12:33

12104.jpegGeorgian sailors captured by Somali pirates have contacted their relatives after a month-long silence, Trend reports.


The situation on the ship is difficult and is getting even more complicated each day, they inform. The hostages are constantly demanded for ransom, they haven't had food or water for five days. The sailors ask for a lawyer from the Georgian side that could get in touch with the criminals and come to an agreement.

According to Sergo Devidze in charge of the campaign to rescue the sailors, it is not impossible that there are victims among the kidnapped.

It will be remembered that 13 Georgian sailors were captured by Somali pirates in summer 2010 as part of the Greek ship crew. A USD 1 mln ransom is asked for release. Georgia's united trade union launched a fund-raising campaign that has failed to collect the necessary amount so far.

Relatives of the kidnapped sailors ask president of Georgia for help.
