The hijacking of the “MCL Bremen” finished with the flight of the pirates just before the Danish navy sucessfully boarded the German-owned cargoship.
The crew, composed of a German master, three Ukrainian and a Russian officer and seven Philippine ratings are safe and unharmed.
According to Tradewinds, the crew had control of the ship’s engine.
“We can only send congratulations to our captain and his crew for executing excellent security procedures,” said general manager, Alexander Schepers. He also wanted to thank the naval vessel and the rescue party.
