Freeport, Bahamas — Teams from the US Coast Guards have been placed on high alert following mutiny on a vessel docked offshore in Grand Bahama.

Bahamas Press has learnt a crew of Hungarian nationals have commandeered a vessel, believed to be registered in the Bahamas.

Less than two hours ago since our first report, Bahamian authorities have stood down in responding to the crisis now at sea. We are told by sources in the Ministry of National Security, government leadership namely Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Hubert Ingraham, is refusing to get involved in the crisis referring to the matter to the international community.

Shortly after 7PM this evening reports coming into BP allege the crew of the ship took command of the vessel travelling in Bahamian waters.

We are told the crew is alleged to have beheaded the captain an have bludgeoned to death his first mate.

The crisis now in the waters of the Bahamas has force units from the US to respond and have forced international attention to be focused on the seas of the Bahamas.

Where is the BIG BAD PAPA NOW?

  1. You see, I’m not just a reader of yours… The beheaded captain used to be my friend. It’s not a story for me but a tragic incident I WILL NEVER OCERCOME. Just a comment to your last reply…

  2. First I would like to say to BP to stop telling fabricating dream up lies. Gedt your store correct, read what the Bermuda Sun has to say. BP has no CREDIBILITY in what they write, BP is in fantasy of make up stories.There was NO Mutiny at sea on a vessel docked off Grand Bahama. BP get you facts correct. May the Captian and his officer RIP.

    • And here’s my big question… Can everyone make up stories, publish them without being sure about the truth, whatever the cost? Isn’t a journalist experienced enough to tell the difference between rumours and real news? Don’t newspapers have reliable sources? It is said in the article that they are told by sources in the Ministry of National Security. This is not a story about famous actors but captains and mates. It’s serious… How can that happen?

      • Here’s another good question SP, where are the two men beheaded which were reported in all the media to have been transferred to the Rand? What happened with those corpse?

        BP

        • The corpses have already been buried in Greece, since 15th January. That’s sth I do know. What I don’t know is whether the Hungarian nationals or the injured second mate have ever been approached by your team. There is no other way to confirm the story… There were about 20 people on such a vessel. Has anyone been interviewed or even narrated on the phone what they really saw? Now you’re talking about two beheaded corpses. You had written that only the captain was beheaded.What has changed? Will you confirm your article through evidence? Or will it be an unbelievable tale in Grand Bahama?

    • In care you missed our reponse JR here are the question you must answer.

      we ask you the following questions: How did the “WEATHER” mysteriously kill the captain and his first mate? Can you explain what did the weather do? What were the conditions of the corpse? Was any of the victims beheaded? What was the state of the remaining members of the crew? Were all crew members accounted for?

      Firstly, we were the first to report this tragedy to the public? Secondly, if this was an “ACCIDENT BY WEATHER” can you explain why officials from the Bahamas refused to assist the distressed vessel and crew, knowing “Weather” was the reason behind the deaths? Why would there be a need to seek advise from the AG office? Does this mean if a jet crashes in waters of the Bahamas, Bahamian authorities will not make assistance available to survivors? AND additionally they would seek advise to assist them at the AG OFFICE? SOME PEOPLE ARE AS asleep and shallow living and reading BP, as the dead captain and his first mate on the vessel.

      The “cooked” story and justifications now appearing in the media simply does not add up!

      • Additionally, there is a report today in the Freeport News which says, investigations are still ongoing on the vessel. WE WONDER WHY?

        Bahamas Press/Editor

      • Could you please be more specific on what you’re saying about the causes of the captain’s death and the condition of his corpse? Why beheaded? And if so, can’t a wave cause such a death? Could you please answer this? I’m so worried…

      • After 5 days, you’ve told us nothing about the incident. The corpses are still there, nothing is being announced and we’re just wondering… Could such a crime disappear since you have already presented us a headless corpse? -not to mention the death of the captain’s first mate.Will we ever know the truth?

  3. BP, I’m a Bahamian residing in the US & I read your web site from time to time but I’m starting to wonder if the site is more ‘tabloid-ish’ than fact-based reporting. There seems to be some serious inconsistencies between the story as printed by you & what is being reported across the international wires. The incident on the Greek-registered vessel ‘Aegean Angel’ which occurred in international waters, is being sited as weather-related. If this unfortunate incident was indeed accidental, wouldn’t it be the responsible thing for you to retract your story, or give some further update as the facts become more apparent?

    • Well AJF I ask you he following questions: How did the “WEATHER” mysteriously kill the captain and his first mate? Can you explain what did the weather do? What were the conditions of the corpse? Was any of the victims beheaded? What was the state of the remaining members of the crew? Were all crew members accounted for?

      Firstly, we were he first to report this tragedy to the public? Secondly, if this was an “ACCIDENT BY WEATHER” can you explain why officials from the Bahamas refused to assist the distressed vessel and crew, knowing “Weather” was the reason behind the deaths?

      The “cooked” story and justifications now appearing in the media simply does not add up!

      But we report AJF, yinner decide.

  4. It would be nice to know why Papa didn’t get involved. This did not occur in international waters. If it did, it still would have been a matter of getting permission from the country in which the vessel is registered. Once received, the US would have been given permission to enter our jurisdiction. Did Papa do this? If so, why do we have a defense force again? Let them use their training alongside the US. Oh, sorry, it’s only to watch as illegal immigrants gain access to our country! @Mr. Finley, are you by chance fedup with the current state of our country?

    • Thomas what you mean “IF” True? How much times we gata tell yinner when we report something this is BP and NOT the DAMN DUTTY TRIBUNE? Thomas go read the Guardian this morning FRONT PAGE then if you think our report last night is a fluke.

      BP

      PS: Another BIG story you will not see on the MUPPET SHOW [ZNS] nor will ink be written about in the TOILET PAPER [Tribune].

  5. What a load of utter nonsense. The only thing correct in this report is that the ship was offshore Freeport and that two of the crew members had died.

    • Keep reading Xteuchter, keep reading cause we gata make sure the comments don’t all lean in our favour.

      If we reported Hubert Ingraham is Bahamian, you would continue to come on here and refute that statement. And if not you, someone would.

      WE REPORT YINNER DECIDE!

      BP

  6. As bad as BP is at times, I must say that they are always on top of late breaking news. Sometimes in their haste, they may make a mistake. Strive for the best BP, you are the only 24Hr news outlet we have.

  7. thank you BP for informing those of us who would be blindsided by the things which affect the nation as a whole. for a beheading in the bahamas before one week is completed in 2011 at sea with a territory so vast it is a clear sign that our waters have become more treacherous shoal as the national anthem indicates. a prayer extended for the peace of the departed souls and for the country as a whole. there are many who are not speaking of GOD nowadays and yet it is HE WHO KEEPS US. This is a good reason for ZNS to stay broadcasting from Grand Bahama so that others would know what is really going on. Continue the broadcast from there to the rest of the Bahamas if it remains a part of the country.

  8. Gentlemen please!!. If the vessel is in Bahamian waters then, it is a problem for the Bahamian authorities. We cannot duck out of this; and please, leave the politics out.This situation if true, affects us all.

  9. Altec, you are the biggest fool ever born of a woman, no one ever takes BP serious only you. Your dislike of the FNM has you believing every story that runs on this lieing site.

    Altec, You must be a pathetic PLP general.

    • SAD DAY, WE REPORT, YOU READ, AND YOU DECIDE! The BIGGEST FOOL IS YOU who keep reading what you don’t believe!

      BP

    • No Sad Day, you look like the fool as the story is true as other media outlets have reported on it as well this morning.

      Furthermore there was nothing political in my statement, I simply asked a valid question regarding the investigation based on what was reported here. Seems like you are the one with the political agenda and is guilty of the very thing you are accusing me off!

        • Loverboi this is worth repeating…I ask you he following questions: How did the “WEATHER” mysteriously kill the captain and his first mate? Can you explain what did the weather do? What were the conditions of the corpse? Was any of the victims beheaded? What was the state of the remaining members of the crew? Were all crew members accounted for?

          Firstly, we were he first to report this tragedy to the public? Secondly, if this was an “ACCIDENT BY WEATHER” can you explain why officials from the Bahamas refused to assist the distressed vessel and crew, knowing “Weather” was the reason behind the deaths?

          The “cooked” story and justifications now appearing in the media simply does not add up!

          • The accident didn’t happen in Bahamian waters if you would read the story that was posted on http://bermudasun.bm/main.asp?Search=1&ArticleID=49849&SectionID=24&SubSectionID=270&S=1

            The Incident happened in Bermuda and a different captain and first mate was air lifted to the ship to bring it from Bermuda (Rough Water) to The Bahamas (Calm Water) so that the dead people could be carried off by the US Coast Guard… But the Bahamian Authorities could not do anything with out getting the okay from the Greece authorities on how they wanted this matter to be carried out because the boat was registered in Greece. It is different if it would have happened in Bahamian waters i am sure that the Government and the rightful authorities would have done all in their power to help the people on board.

      • Altec we asked one simple question: If the deaths were weather related, why did Ingraham not assist the victims? Why did the Government of the Bahamas seek a legal opinion from the Attorney General’s Office?

        BP

    • Thank you BP for being our eyes and ears especially in light of the fact that ZNS GB will no longer be viewed by the rest of the Bahamas in live time come 10/01.Unfortunately some persons like “sad day” only thinks through a political cap and has no patriotism for the Bahamas.I just hope we are able to have further updates on this story from BIS which should change its name and adopt the name “can only speak when allowed” has become obsolete like “sad day”.

  10. BP, why you trying to upset me?

    If what you report is true, i just have one question: if this crime took place in Bahamian territory, why did Papa have Bahamian authorities “stand down”?

    There has to be more to this because Papa’s decision makes no sense!
