“They let them go and there is no pressure”

A sailor’s father spoke to neakriti, revealing that his son is cool and in good health, like the rest of the crew.

«He is in a good mood. As all the crew members told us at the beginning, they shook a little. He was embarrassed, but then calmed down. The Iranians are behaving very well, and they have assured us that everything will be fine. I have also spoken with the Minister of Shipping Mr. Plakiotakis, from whom we also received positive confirmations. I want to believe that the whole issue will soon have a happy ending. The ship is moored outside the port.

In the phone call we had, even though my son could not talk much, he told us that they just gave them the phones back as they had been taken from the first day, but according to what he told us in the early hours of the next day they gave them back. They let them circulate on the ship and there is no pressure that existed on the first day. Now things are more relaxed and as he informed us they are behaving very well. There is a security unit left inside, ie about ten people, no more. We hope that the problem will be restored as soon as possible and that calm and normalcy will occur “.
