  • Description

    A SOVIET SHIP LEFT NAPLES YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) -- AND BEHIND HER A MYSTERY. FOR TEN DAYS, THE SHIP'S CAPTAIN HAD REFUSED TO ALLOW ITALIAN CUSTOMS OFFICIALS ABOARD. THEN YESTERDAY, ON THE MORNING OF HER DEPARTURE, THE CUSTOMS WERE ALLOWED TO SEARCH THE SHIP, THE 4,450-TON FREIGHTER ILICHEVSK. BUT, AS SHE PULLED OUT FOR AN UNKNOWN DESTINATION, THE UNSOLVED QUESTION WAS: WHY WAS A CUSTOMS INSPECTION REFUSED IN THE FIRST PLACE?
    YESTERDAY'S CUSTOMS SEARCH FOLLOWED SEVERAL DAYS OF DISCUSSIONS WITH SOVIET EMBASSY OFFICIALS AND THE ITALIAN AUTHORITIES. CUSTOMS MEN SAID SHE WAS CARRYING ONLY SAND BALLAST, AND SHE WAS GIVEN A CLEARANCE TO SAIL.

    THE ODESSA-REGISTERED ILICHEVSK SAILED INTO NAPLES ELEVEN DAYS AGO. THE CAPTAIN SAID THE SHIP HELD NO CARGO AND PLANNED TO SAIL OUT THE SAME DAY. BUT THE CUSTOMS BLOCKED THE SAILING AFTER HE REFUSED TO ALLOW THEM TO SEARCH THE VESSEL.
