We are still waiting for that report.

What you tell us is vague.

Asked to change the course? And how that will endanger your boat? You explain them what you could and could not do, it seems that they have accepted that. You were doing what your boat could do? How has that lead to an accident? What part on that accident is due to the Venezuelan Navy and why?

Lots of questions. When you have time tell us all the story please.
