Subject: Sala 1 update
FYI Sala 1 case is ongoing but part payment has been made to the crew:
MV Sala 1: seafarers have been paid USD200.243,77 , covering 4 months wages.
Pending wages are now April and current May and repatriation.
Gouv. de Panama (31 décembre 2020)
PMA imposed a documentary restriction over the vessel, which prevent the cancelation of the registry and the change of ownership in the registry. According to the Database, on May 24, 2018, ITF indicated that partially
payment has been made to the crew, the crews have received USD$200,243.77 covering 4 months, but still pending April and May, and repatriation.
Fed. int. des ouvriers du transport (ITF) (2 juillet 2021)
Vessel is now dead. 4 months owed wages were paid but 2 months were still outstanding. The outstanding wages were to be paid on repatriation but we have no confirmation from the crew that this happened.
