Maersk employee freed four days after abduction in Angola

Maersk Group has released a short statement confirming that an employee in Angola was abducted and released four days later.

The employee was abducted last week on his way to Viana.

“Maersk Group can confirm an employee was abducted in Angola and held captive for four days and that he has been released unharmed,” spokeswoman Louise Munter said in a statement.

The company was providing support for the man and his family “in this difficult time,” she said.

“Due to the ongoing investigation by local authorities and the security of our employees, the Maersk Group will not be providing any further details,” she added.
