Dear Jan de Boer,

Thank you for the information provided.

In regards to the vessel "Pan Prosperity", I would like to let you know that we have been informed from Panama that a case file has been opened and the vessel is under restriction to leave the registry. As soon as we receive a new information we will let you know.

Kind regards,

Dear Mr. De Boer.

Hope you are doing well.

We address you in this occasion regarding the case of the crew of M/V PAN PROSPERITY, IMO 9125152. In the attached documents, you may observe that the case of the crew was resolved; payment of all wages owed and repatriated.

Therefore, we ask you to include this case in the list of cases resolved on the Database on Reported Incidents of Abandonment of Seafarers, IMO/ILO.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for any further question,

ITF (18 September 2017)
Dear Jinhak
Re the Pan Prosperity – the crew were repatriated by the flag state (Panama) but the crew also decided to appoint a local lawyer in Venezuela – the lawyer was engaged on a private basis without the ITF’s participation in the legal action and we do not have further details on the action. I don’t have copies of the documents to which the correspondents below refer.
Best, Katie

Although no written response received from the owners’ insurer Hydor, the ship’s Master was contacted by Hydor and told over the phone that no cover under the latest Amendments to the MLC 2006 on abandonment of seafarers had been arranged.
