Indian crew of MV Suez to be home by Monday

They were recently freed by Somali pirates and are now expected to be at their home by June 20. The ship “MV Suez” was earlier captured by the pirates in August last year.

The ship is currently on its way to Salalah, the capital of the Omani province of Dhofar, and is expected to berth at the port there sometime early Saturday. “There is no reason for the families of the crew members to worry. We will ensure that they reach home safe and sound. From Muscat, the crew members will be sent back to their countries by air. We expect all of them to be back home by Monday,” he added.

After a brief rest at Salalah, the 22-member crew, including six Indians and four Pakistanis, will travel to Muscat, Burney, who played a key role in negotiations with the pirates to free them, told agencies.
