This vessel changed name to Balcar on 31 March 2007. Flag now seems to be Bolivian. The vessel has been operating in the Black Sea since the beginning of 2006. In September this year the ITF received a call from one of the current crew complaining of unpaid wages of the 11 Ukrainian seafarers on board, no food and little water. Ship manager claimed that crew would be repatriated and that food and water problems would be resolved, however it was not possible to verify this due to loss of contact with crew.
The ship manager and operator is Petunia Shipping Srl, Italy, the DOC company is GM Trading & Chartering and the registered owner is Aileen Corporation, Panama.

Crew were effectively deported, wages not paid, unclear as to whether vessel is still owned by the same company.
