This vessel is part of the PALMALI SHIPPING & AGENCY company, which has a number of abandoned vessels around the world.
ITF (5 March 2021)
1 crewmember wants to be repatriated and we have engaged with the P&I. The period for which we made the claim on behalf of the crewmember was covered by West of England. They have informed us that they will assume responsibility, having initially refuted this . The crewmember will receive $USD15,000 for 4 months. The ITF will continue to advise the crewmember on the process to recover the rest of his outstanding wages through a judicial process.
ITF (13 December 2021)
The vessel is still at the same place and the crew has still not been paid. Some of them have been onboard for 24 months hoping they get paid.
