Venezuela’s government led by Hugo Chavez has seized a U.S. flagged ship and crew, according to Panorama, a daily newspaper in that country.
The ship, Ocean Atlas, has been held since the end of August. Panorama said an American diplomat confirmed the ship’s captain was arrested. The diplomat described the situation as a “case in development.”
Forbes surfaced the story in the U.S. with writer Christopher Helman updating the saga that has an unusual aspect.
