The MV Jubba XX was hijacked on July 16 in the Indian Ocean en route from Umm al Qaiwain to Berbera in Somaliland, the autonomous northern region of Somalia.

On board were the captain, from Sri Lanka, with five crewmen from India, four from Somalia, three from Bangladesh and one each from Kenya, Myanmar and Sudan.

The 4,800-tonne vessel’s owners, Jubba General Trading of Sharjah, and its managers, Emirates Shipping Company in Umm al Qaiwain, have not been able to make contact with the ship since it was hijacked.

“We called all day and got no response,” Omar Alkheir, the general manager of Emirates Shipping, said yesterday.

The tanker left Umm al Qaiwain three weeks ago and was travelling on its regular route.
