The crew of “MV Jahan Moni”, freed last week after 99 days in captivity will be returning home from Oman today a day earlier than expected. The good health of the crew and quick completion of the formalities in Oman has made it possible to send them home more quickly.
An Oman Airways flight carrying the crew members will land at Chittagong airport on Monday, he added saying that the freed crewmen were staying in a hotel adjacent to Oman’s Port Salalah.
The Bangladesh flag carrier reached the port on Saturday five days after its release by Somali pirates.
The hostages were finally freed on Mar 14 when the ship management said the crew members would be repatriated on Mar 22.
