Good day,

First good news: 2 ships released last two days!
MT Smyrni (IMO 9493779) Dynacom
MT Royal Grace (IMO 8410407)

Currently hijacked/hostage:

1* MV Albedo (15 crew --- some crew released a few months ago)
2* Dozen of fishing vessels

Hostages without a vessel:

3* MV Leopard (6 crew)
4* MT Asphalt Venture (7 crew)

This is much better than 2 years ago. But some crew is currently held for more than 2 years now, and don`t forget every week there are piracy incidents.
