details of a mutiny and death at

Meanwhile, three nations tried,
to resolve the question of who
has jurisdiction in the incident
that claimed the lives of the
ship's four officers.
LOUIS GIDEL, deputy region-,
al director of the Immigration
and Naturalization S e r v i c e
(INS) in Miami, denied reports
that an unnamed INS spokes-
man had named one of the sur-
vivors - four Indonesian sea-
men and a Filipino cook - as
the suspected murderer of the
ship's missing officers.
"No one has been charged,"
he said.
The five survivors were iden-

The cargo ship Mimi sank
northeast of Cuba on Saturday,
and the five crewmen were later
spotted by a U.S. Coast Guard
search plane and rescued. The
vessel's four West German offi-
cers were never found despite
an extensive search.
MANFRED OPPERMAN, cap-
tain of the West German freight-

men from a life raft, said one
of the crewmen admitted stab-

go along with the mutiny.
"From what they said, it cer-
tainly looks like a mutiny at sea.
