In Brief: EU court hearing for illegal vessel

The European Court of Human Rights held a Grand Chamber hearing Wednesday for the crew of a ship intercepted by French authorities while flying a Cambodian flag. The Winner was pulled off the Senegalese coast June 13, 2002, on suspicion it was involved in narcotics trafficking, and towed to Brest, France, where it docked June 26. During that time, the crew members say they were illegally deprived of liberty and held for an additional period in police custody in France. After the hearing the court will begin its deliberations, with a judgement to be delivered "at a later date".
