Mohd Hassan refused to deny or confirm media reports that the company had paid $2 mill in ransom for the release of each vessel. He said that MISC would become a target for pirates if he revealed the amount paid.

He also reportedly said although paying a ransom was against the company’s policy, MISC had to do it to secure the release of its crew members. At the same time, he also assured that the company would take extra safety measures in future but did not want to disclose the plan, claiming that the pirates were very “internet savvy”.
