CSSN has verified a limited number of facts with the victims’ designated representative. The situation remains dynamic as the investigation by Panamanian authorities moves forward, and the legal process follows.

Three pirates boarded the family yacht, located near Dad Naggwe Dubbir island in the Guna Yala/San Blas islands of Panama in the early hours of May 2, 2019. The captain died of wounds received in the attack, and other family members were injured. Three suspects were taken into custody in the Colon jurisdiction.

Multiple press reports contain information that has not been verified (some of it inconsistent), but might be considered helpful, particularly those portions attributed by direct quote to family members.
