As the clock ticks on a pirate ultimatum, the families of Indian sailors held onboard “MV Suez” for over 200 days have pleaded with the government for immediate action.
The pirates holding the “MV Suez” have told the Indian Government that they will kill the crew if demands are not met within 48 hours. Challenging the Indian Navy pirates added, “This is our time to show you what we can do”.
Time will tell whether a response can be initiated or whether common sense and negotiation will win out. We can but hope that the families concerns can be allayed and their loved ones can be returned home safely.
