Pay Day

The tanker “MT Zirku” has been released after the payment of a ransom.

Pirates claimed a record amount ($12 Million) was been paid to free the vessel which has 29 crew onboard and was loaded with Blend Crude Oil. However experts believe the final price was not as high as this.

The vessel was held for 45 days after being seized on March 28, 2011 by two pirate skiffs as the attackers overcame water cannons and two rows of razor wire to get on board.
