    Crewmembers of the U.S. Coastguard cutter "Vigilant" which carries out patrol duties with the New?

  • Description

    Crewmembers of the U.S. Coastguard cutter "Vigilant" which carries out patrol duties with the New Bedford fishing fleet, are still being victimised two weeks after an incident at sea. The "Vigilant" had been alongside a Russian fishing vessel while fishing rights were being discussed among senior officers, when a crewmember of the Russian ship, who had sought asylum on the "Vigilant", was forcibly removed and returned by the Soviet crew.

    Local fishermen and inhabitants of New Bedford have been concerned for some time about Soviet fleets offshore spoiling their livelihood and have reacted against the coastguard crew for missing a chance to take action. A crewmember has spoken of the feelings since the incident.
