Supreme Court of Seychelles further remands Vietnamese national in murder case

(Seychelles News Agency) – The Supreme Court of Seychelles has further remanded a Vietnamese national, a suspect in a murder at sea case, on Tuesday morning. He is expected to reappear in court in a fortnight.  

The man, who initially appeared before the court on December 26, was involved in an incident on a fishing vessel in the Seychelles Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) whereby there was an altercation between two crew members. 

According to initial reports received by the Seychelles Police, there was a fight between two members of the crew in which the Vietnamese suspect injured a 22-year-old man from Myanmar with an object and he died as a result.
