Lone survivor of piracy attack says pirates were Guyanese
Salim Feroze Hack, the captain of a boat from which four fishermen are still missing after it came under attack by pirates nearly two weeks ago in Surinamese waters, believes that their attackers were Guyanese.
Hack is the lone survivor of the attack that was carried out on July 9, nearly two hours after midnight. Their boat was stripped of its cargo and possessions, and later left drifting at sea while they were thrown overboard, one by one. He has since been placed on station bail and is required to visit the Beterverwagting police station every day.
