Reportedly for 86 Indian seafarers languishing at Tanjung Uban anchorage in indonesia for nearly five months over allegations of breaching the Southeast Asian country's territorial waters there seems to no end to their ordeal. Meanwhile despite efforts from Indian External Affairs Ministry in New delhi and Indian Embassy in Jakarta, the rampant corruption and excessive red tape afflicting Indonesian judiciary is dwindling the hope of these seamen returning to their homes and reuniting with their families.

Furthermore their traumatic experience began when five commercial vessels that they were manning anchored at East of singapore Straits on EOPL (easter-Outer-Port-Limit) waters on February 8 and 9 awaiting further orders from charterers, companies that booked their services. Apparently they were of the opinion that they were still in international waters.



Previously the Indian Ambassador to indonesia pradeep Kumar Rawat visited the crew members at Tanjung Uban anchorage on May 24 and assured them of repatriation and release, nothing has been done so far as Indonesian Navy claims that the matter is subjudice and within the realm of Indonesian judiciary. Moreover with no resolution in sight, both sailors and their families back home finding it difficult to keep their spirits high and remain optimistic. The sailors hail from delhi, Bihar, Maharashtra, goa, kerala, Tamilnadu, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat.
