FOURTH YEAR IN PRISON FOR CREW OF SEAMAN GUARD OHIO

September 1st 2017

Former crewmembers of the Seaman Guard Ohio are in the middle of their fourth year in detention in Chennai prison in India.

They have been completely abandoned by their employer.

Sick, hungry and exhausted, the men are waiting for the results of an appeal heard last November.

Now their supporters have produced a film describing the conditions in which they live as they await an uncertain future, charged with a crime they did not commit.

A page has been set up via the Mission to Seafarers to help pay the men’s legal fees. It is aimed at the six British citizens but has been used to assist with the legal fees of the Estonian and Ukrainian mariners as well.
