Comments and Observations:ITF (5 June 2019)
Owners have ignored previous attempts from ITF to establish contact and negotiate settlement. Three months wages are outstanding for current crew. It should also be noted that members of previous crew have reported that they were not paid before disembarking.

Message from owner on 3 June claims to have paid outstanding wages. 5 crew have disembarked and we understand that they were paid, but we have no confirmation for the remaining crew.

We are concerned that the problem will repeat.
