London. UK. The case of the alleged ‘hijacking’ and threatening of the ship’s crew by seven Nigerian stowaways in UK Territorial Waters (TTWs) on 25 October 2020 has been dropped by the UK Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). The incident resulted in significant international media controversy after the UK Special Boat Service (SBS) conducted a night-time boarding to regain control of the Liberian flagged crude oil tanker Nave Andromeda (IMO: 9580405) owned by Folegandros Shipping Corporation and operated by Greece-based Navios Maritime Holdings.
