In 1994 or 95 Baltietis arriwed to Slite-Gotland-Sweden from Riga-Latvia.
Baltietis came as a smugglership. The Tug had over sixty refugees (some
of them children) from Pakistan onboard. When they arriwed the crew used
weapon to force theirs "passengers" into liferafts, outside the coast of
Gotland. Baltietis were soon taken by the Swedish Coast Guard. The crew
was arrested, and soon after that, judged to prison in Sweden. The crew
rented Baltietis from the Latvian owners.
The first Swedish owner was from FÅRÖSUND Gotland – Sweden.
He bought her from the Swedish Coast Guard.
2002-03 he selled her to a family in STOCKHOLM - Swe. In 2005 she was sold
to Jatop Aps for breaking up.
