‘Barbaros’ responds to South’s radio warning with music

5 May 2017

Crew members of the seismic survey vessel ‘Barbaros Hayreddin Pasa’ responded to Greek Cypriot officials warning that they were violating South Cyprus’ EEZ by playing them a little music.

A video of the event has been posted on You Tube, showing the incident where the crew are being told that they are “conducting an unauthorised and illegal operation in the territorial sea, the Exclusive Economic Zone, and the continental shelf of the Republic of Cyprus.”

We hereby demand that you immediately cease all illegal operations,” the Cypriot official said. A member of the crew then responded by playing a military march, the classic Ottoman “Mehter Marsi,” played on his mobile phone.
