Greek crewmen to appear before Libya prosecutor for entering territorial waters
The eight Greek crewmen of a Greek-owned tanker who were arrested on Wednesday night off Libya on suspicion of fuel smuggling were reportedly transferred to a naval base in Tripoli on Friday.
The tanker, which was confiscated, was also docked at the base.
The eight crew members were to appear before a prosecutor, according to local sources from Libya’s capital.
The Togo-flagged tanker was intercepted by the Libyan coast guard at a distance of eight nautical miles from Abu Kammash, an important petrochemical complex near the Tunisian border.
