From Ministry of ports, shipping and waterways
I am directed to refer to your email dated 13.01.2021 informing this office about the abandonment of vessel AL RAHYAH at Port Saleef, Yemen since 14.02.2020 having 08 Seafarers (06 from India,0l from Bangladesh and 01 from Egyptl) on board.
2. lt was also informed that all the Indian Seafarers want to get paid and repatriated as they all had been locked in a hotel room in Yemen from past 09 months. However, they were rescured by Indian Embassy in Yemen but their concern related to unpaid wages stil remains the same.
3. In this connection, it is stated that on examining the e-governance system of this Directorate, the details of the Recruitment & placement of Seafarers (RpS) Agency/company through which these seafarers were recruited on board, could not be found. The possibility of these Indian seafarers being recruited through an Un-registered RPS Agency/Company cannot be ruled out.
4. In view of the above, it is requested that the details of the issue may please be confirmed from the source of the complaint and communicated to this office for further necessary action.
