The owner of the missing freighter 'Amurskaya' has been arrested on suspicion of negligence leading to multiple deaths.

The cargo ship Amurskaya was carrying a cargo of 700 tons of gold ore when it went missing near the Shantar Islands in the Sea of Okhotsk on October 28. All nine crew members are still missing, reports the 'Moscow Times'.

The unnamed manager is expected to be charged with violations of maritime safety rules leading to two or more deaths. The charges carry a sentence of up to seven years in jail.

Rescuers later believed they had located the missing vessel in shallow waters near its last known location, but a diving expedition to conduct a closer inspection had to be postponed because of deteriorating weather.
