Georgian sailors detained in Libya extended imprisonment term


Three Georgian sailors detained in Libya were extended imprisonment term by 30 days. The trial into their case was held without any prior notice on October 16. The trial was scheduled for October 17. 

Family members of the detainees are asking for help from the government. They claim that the Georgian sailors have neither interpreter nor lawyer. 

Ministry of Foreign Affairs reports that the Georgian Consulate in Egypt is holding negotiations with Libyan state structures. 

Three Georgian sailors were detained in Libya, including the vessel's captain. A Turkish ship sailing under Tanzanian flag was detained by the Libyan Coast Guard on August 30. The ship was detained on charge of transporting smuggled cargo.
