Veller: the Russian seamen forced to take aboard cocaine under the threat of weapon


The deputy of the State Duma Alexey Veller visited the arrested Russians in Cape Verde prison. The expert Mikhail Voitenko considers the version "oddish" Archive. Photo: The Russian seamen were forced to take EPA\TASS aboard the vessel freight with cocaine under the threat of weapon. The deputy of the State Duma from Murmansk region Alexey Veller told RBC about it. The day before he visited the arrested Russians in Cape Verde prison and, in particular, met their lawyer. According to protection, freight which was cocaine was overloaded on the vessel in waters of the Caribbean Region. "Three boats in one of which there were armed men approached. The version of the captain is that the team at this moment was in a stalemate" — the deputy told the words of the lawyer. Detention of the bulk carrier became known on February 2 — police officers found 9.5 tons of cocaine on the vessel. The vessel went under the flag of Panama to Morocco. All crew — 12 people — citizens of Russia. Law enforcement agencies of the African state suspect them of drug trafficking. At present they are arrested and are in prison on the island of Santiago. The editor-in-chief of Sea Bulletin online media Mikhail Voitenko doubts the version according to which drugs aboard forced to take crew. — It is some oddish version from the captain because first there was something more convincing, in as I believed: they just were not aware in general. Something to them was shipped there and what, they did not know. That there under the threat of weapon all this business by it was shipped, frankly speaking, hardly I trust. — There are such who are capable of such step who could force to ship freight? — No, the sea vessel, the ocean vessel armed with all means of possible communication which it seems kind of officially is registered in all databases whose system of identification works communication works... How, how? If only together with them these children with automatic machines float if at the same time still tell that if you though peep a word, your families will suffer, then yes, then it is similar to the truth. And so in itself well it: there was a vessel far away — and right there threw a distress signal. Especially they were there in the Korean pool which is filled — the American coast guard, Dutches, there all chase these drugs to whom not laziness. Only whistle, raise a finger — and right there will come running. Strange story, here just strange, and all. The Russian crew is protected by the lawyer who was employed for 60 thousand euros. This money at the initiative of the deputy Veller was raised for protection of compatriots by charity foundation in Murmansk. The Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova still on March 15 March said that the situation is on control of Foreign Ministry and diplomats. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
