One year on, crew of detained ship still held in India
The crew members of the "Seaman Guard Ohio" are still unable to leave India. In Oct 2013, the ship was impounded and the crew and armed guards aboard were detained after it entered Indian waters without adequate permission. The Mission to Seafarers has announced that the freed crew of the vessel now face further detention and a possible re-trial after a last minute appeal was lodged to overturn the decision of the Indian High Court to drop all charges. Six British crewmen, along with 29 other seafarers, have now been held for a year on 12 Oct in Chennai, after their anti-piracy support vessel was arrested after straying into Indian waters during a typhoon. The men had been found innocent by the court in July and freed, and were hoping to return home this week. the High Court Judge dismissed all charges three months ago, so the men rightly presumed that they were at last free to go. The Security Forces, known as ‘Q Branch’, have lodged a counter-appeal to have the charges re-instated in the Indian Supreme Court. The Mission to Seafarers, the crew and families made a plea to the British and Indian authorities to do more.
