Al Khaliq: handymax bulker ransomed 3.1-3.3m


Somali pirates say they received a $3.1 million ransom, local reports speak of $3.2m, paid by the British shipowner.
"All crew members have been with us for years and we’ll make sure they are released,” said S.C. Sehgal, managing director of SNP Shipping Services Private Limited, manager of the Panamanian-flagged Al Khaliq.
The ship MV AL KHALIQ has been freed today after a multimillion dollar ransom was delivered. "She sailed free after the last pirate left the vessel this morning,"
The 22,000 dwt handymax bulker MV AL KHALIQ was captured on 22 Oct. 2009 around 180 miles west of the Seychelles. The crew consists of 24 Indian sailors and two Burmese nationals.

Reuters quoted Somali pirates as saying they received a $3.1 million ransom, local reports speak of $3.2m, paid by the British shipowner.

The vessel is owner-managed by London-based Holbud Ship Management.

The vessel with over 35,000 metric tons of wheat grain for Mombasa in Kenya has now sailed free from the Somali coast near Harardheere with all crew on board apparently being ok, given the circumstances.

The ship, however, had to be refueled to reach Mombasa, where she is expected in around 5 days time. MT APLHA PINA was sent with fuel from Mombasa and is now escorting the vessel to the Kenyan port.
