16/2/21 – We have been spending a bit more time today looking into the ‘Elbeik’:
17/2 – Current status – at anchor.
Here are some things we have found:
The Elbeik is currently moored just off Famagusta on the East coast of Cyprus.
The vessel ELBEIK (IMO: 6718427, MMSI 671002100) is a Livestock Carrier built in 1967 (54 years old) and currently sailing under the flag of Togolese Rep.
Togo is located in Africa: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Togo

It was originally built in 1967 – making it now 54 years old !
In those days it was called the ‘Tyro’ and was operated by the Dutch.
We are currently cooperating with other European welfare organisations to see if we can obtain any more current info as to why the Elbeik is moored off Cyprus.
Further updates to come when we have more.
