18 March 2018
Amidst the mystery of what exactly happened to the Nostromo, and the whereabouts and safety of Princess Latifa II, the Indian coastguard have been asked repeatedly for information. On 18 March 2018, Radha Stirling, in her capacity as representative to the Nostromo’s passengers, sent the following email to the Indian Coast Guard.
Stirling’s message makes it clear that an SOS call was made by Sheikha Latifa Al Maktoum from aboard the Nostromo, in or near Indian territorial waters. With the last known coordinates of the yacht included, it asks the Indian authorities to meet their international obligations to investigate, and to provide warnings to other vessels that hostile activity has being reported in the area.

With all the information sent to them, coupled with their obligations under international law, there truly is no excuse for the Indian Coast Guard and Ministry of Defense to avoid launching a thorough investigation.
