Ministry spokesman Piotr Paszkowski told AFP that, according to the Polish consul in Nairobi, the MV Patriot was released on May 15 and "is back at sea."
He refused to give any details on the circumstances of the ship's release or where it was headed.
Polish media, citing Kenyan authorities, said the crew also included a Ukrainian engineer.
The vessel, owned by Hamburg-based shipowner Blumenthal JMK, was seized in the Gulf of Aden in late April.
