PRETORIA, August 12 (Itar-Tass) - The release of the Russian sailors from the Nigerian prison has been delayed at least until Monday, an official from the Russian Embassy in Lagos told Itar-Tass by telephone on Friday.
The diplomat said the documents required for the release are not ready yet.
On Friday, the Russian Embassy in Nigeria held another round of consultations with the lawyers of the Russian sailors who are kept in a remand ward of the Kiri-Kiri maximum security prison on oil contraband charges.
The federal court in Lagos on August 4 met the petition of the Russian sailors' lawyers to release them on the Embassy's guarantees. It requires a letter of guarantees signed by the Russian Ambassador to Nigeria.
