Ken O'Keefe of the Road2Hope convoy explains to Hassan Ghani the circumstances in which convoy members have been dragged to Greece by the captain of a cargo ship. The ship was due to transfer the convoy to Al Arish, however the crew started to sail away during loading. Please note this interview is unedited, however the line was disconnected towards the end and we were unable to re-establish contact.

This video shows the outrageous behaviour of the captain and Greek owned Strofades IV as it kidnapped 10 R2H convoy members and 7 Libyan police from Derna Port in Libya to Athens, Greece. This ship was chartered due to Egypt refusing access to Gaza by land. What this highlights is the extreme difficulty and potential danger of helping the beseiged people of Gaza, Palestine.

PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – PLEASE CIRCULATE WIDELY
Wednesday 10th November, 2010
23.15 GMT – LONDON…UK AID WORKERS (INCLUDING 2 MAVI MARMARA SURVIVORS) HELD HOSTAGE ON GREEK-OWNED SHIP, AFTER SHIP OWNER ARGUES WITH EGYPTIAN BROKER
DERNA PORT, LIBYA
“Strofades IV” has broken its moorings, without port permission, and is heading out of Derna Harbour.
The rear door of the ship is half closed, with convoy vehicle B7 stuck on it precariously. It is extremely dangerous.
In the lower deck of the Ro-Ro (rollon rolloff) ship are held hostage:
3 Libyans – (2 port authority policemen, with Colonel Salahuddin Rashin, Manager of Derna Port)
6 UK nationals
The violent Greek owner who is also its captain of “Strofades IV” has just disembarked (as at 22.50 GMT) through a side door of the ship, onto a speed boat. His speed boat has made for another cargo vessel in Derna the harbour – “Odin Finder”.
None of our guys now know who is in charge of Strofades IV, or where it is destined to go.
The ship is empty, apart from the hostages and single convoy vehicle jammed in the doorway. It is making rapid headway to get out to sea.
The matter is a serious breach of every maritime law possible.
We have asked all relevant Embassies to supply urgent, immediate, consular assistance.
We are EXTREMELY concerned for the safety of all the nationals on board. ?
