Two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents are currently in the country in relation to the Russian superyacht Amadea, which is berthed at the Lautoka Wharf.

FBC News has been reliably informed that the FBI officers arrived yesterday and are currently assisting local authorities in their investigation.

It’s unclear how long they will be here.

Meanwhile, the Civil High Court yesterday granted an application to register a warrant from the United States to seize the superyacht.

The lawyer for Millemarin Investment Limited, who claims to be the registered owner of the Russian superyacht Amadea, will file an application for an interim stay on the ruling delivered yesterday.

The 347 feet yacht has been in the country for more than two weeks.

Also, the Commissioner of Police, Sitiveni Qiliho, will hold a press conference later today regarding Amadea.
