Arctic Sea: turns its AIS back on at Bejaia Algeria

The phantom vessel Arctic Sea was last noticed with its AIS transponder on passing Malaga on January 24 under the ship’s current captain Mikhail Kotyanin, with timber for Bejaia. A new crew was sent to man the vessel on 11 November and it resumed commerce after being repaired, re-certified, and re-provisioned. The Russians have announced that the original 'hijacked' crew will take over for the next voyage out of Finland.
