Maritime Security Personnel Arrested

As Reported HERE 

I have not re posted the entire article and you can read it by clicking on the link above. Any company taking arms into Eritrean waters is violating the UN arms embargo in place on Eritrea.  So not only do these persons have an issue with the Eritrean authorities, they absolutely will have issue with the arms embargo issue

No. 1: One way to sail through the pirate-infested Gulf of Aden with peace of mind is purchasing security services. Protection Vessels International, Ltd. is one of such security corporations founded by former British special forces personnel. It provides escort and protection services to merchant ships. PVI is a maritime version of Blackwater Inc., which provides security services to officials and military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan.

When a security vessel of the PVI visited the port of Masswa, Eritrea, on Dec. 24 for refueling, the company’s employees were arrested by the Eritrean police on charges of possession of illegal firearms.
