The ship arrived in Naples after sailing from Malta without proper authorisations. It was arrested for safety reasons. The crew received food and medical assistance from the Italian authorities. Later also assisted by the Red Cross. The ship was only fit to be sold as scrap. The crew had not received wages since January 2004.
