Giant cargo ship with all Indian crew blocks the Suez Canal. All you need to know

30 March 2021

HYDERABAD: With the container ship ‘Ever Given’ that had blocked the Suez Canal since March 23 wrenched free from the sandy bank by tug boats on Monday, the next big concern for its crew comprising 25 Indians is how the Suez Canal Authority will treat them.Both the Indian government and the seafarers’ organisations are concerned about the legal issues that the crew may face, including the possibility of criminal charges.

According to sources in the shipping industry, one of the possibilities is that the captain and some of the crew may be restrained from travelling further.They could be placed under house arrest until investigation is completed into the cause of the accident. The ship management, however, has not explained anything about the legal procedures the crew will have to go through.
