Hello sirs and ma'ams from ITF. I am a 2nd Officer currently work here onboard a Greek Flag vessel. Less than 48 hours ago, my captain, drunk, charged unto the bridge and demanded we resign from the ship with no justifiable cause. I politely said no because that wasn't reasonable and forced resignation is against my rights. This enraged my drunk captain and demanded i leave my post on the bridge (my duty is 2000~2400LT). I politely refused to do so because he is udner the influence of the alcohol, in addition to the lack of reason behind it. He yelled at me and demanded i fear his rank because he is the "Law" onboard according to him. I said no then he pushed me back (He is around 6ft tall, im just 5.5ft) i hit the counter here on the briodge and then he proceeded to choke me with both hands. The Duty AB on the helm left his post to pull back the captain. Correct me of im wrong, but doesn't that action constitute attempted murder? Aggravated assault in addition. I will be calling ITF London today or tomorrow because i need to know whats gonna happen to me. Will i be compensated
