Ghanaian man's body lies for 18 months in NI mortuary

Help

The remains of a Ghanaian national, who worked on a Kilkeel trawler, are still in a mortuary in Belfast, 18 months after he died.

Efforts to have his body returned to his native country for burial have so far been unsuccessful.

Fortune Adzawoloo, 29, died of natural causes in July 2011, six weeks after he came to work on a Kilkeel fishing boat.

His family want his body returned home but are disputing who should pay for its repatriation.
