EIGHT crewmen of the Greek-flagged 51,853-dwt tanker Happy Lady that had been taken by pirates in an attack off Cameroon have been released, reports London's Tanker Operator.

The tanker was attacked while anchored two nautical miles from Limboh port in Cameroon on December 21, 2019.



The five Greeks include the 45-year-old captain of the ship, a 26-year-old lieutenant, a 38-year-old engineer and two sea cadets, aged 20 and 21.



Currently, they are at a Cameroon hospital for general medical examinations, after which they are to immediately return to Greece.



Shipping and Island Policy Minister Yiannis Plakiotakis expressed his joy at the release of the Greek seamen, noting 'the coordinated efforts bore fruit. I wish them a safe trip back to Greece and to their families'.
