From Panama Maritime Authority
On June 28, 2021, we have contacted our office in the UAE requesting an update of the conditions of the mentioned vessel, so once we have the information we will make you know immediately.
When the crew joined the vessel it had been anchored for three years. Probably vessel is out of class. Company ignores to contact the ITF.however, in case of Qaaswa the company did reply once the ship was arrested.
