Date: 11th November 2010     Type: Hijacking     Voyage: Malaysia/Singapore to Egypt

Reports have been received that Panama flag vessel HANNIBAL II (16284gt built 1983) has been hijacked by Somali pirates off the Horn of Africa.

The tanker sailed from Port Klang on 26th October, then calling at Singapore, before sailing north towards Suez. She has 31 crew on board.

It is likely that a ransom demand will be made by the pirates quite shortly. Shipowners commonly claim a proportion of any ransom payment from cargo owners as a general average contribution.

Because ransom payments can often lead to a very large claim on cargo insurers, it is important that the full circumstances of the hijacking are investigated.

We have acted for cargo insurers in respect of piracy incidents in the past and have often been able to negotiate reductions in general average payments requested from cargo insurers.
