The 'Andromeda' was intercepted by Greek Special Forces on Jan 6, 2018, off Agios Nikolaos in the Sea of Crete, on suspicion of arms trading, and taken to Heraklion for a thorough check. There were 29 containers, loaded with explosives and detonators, destined for Djibouti and loaded at Mersin, according to the cargo certificates. During the inspection proofs were found that the master was to take the vessel to Misurata to offload the explosives, which is prohibited by internationally imposed sanctions. In addition, no maps of Djibouti were found. All eight crew members, including two Ukrainians, five Indians and one Albanian, were put under arrest. The cargo and the ship have been seized.
