Egypt, Syrian sailor "prisoner" freed for 4 years on board a ship

Mohammed Aisha had been recognized by an Egyptian court as "legal guardian" of the MV Aman, abandoned in the Suez Canal by its owner who did not have the means to enforce it. The International Labor Organization denounces 250 similar cases worldwide

The story of the Syrian Mohammed Aisha, who remained a prisoner on the Aman ship for four long years, and was finally released yesterday by the Egyptian authorities in very bad physical and mental conditions, is truly incredible. His odyssey began in July 2017, when the 4,000-ton motor ship Aman was seized in the port of Adabiya, at the northern end of the Suez Canal, because it had neither documents nor security systems in order.
