The crew have been repatriated from the vessel, which is still located at port Las Calderas in the Dominican Republic. In this case the P&I repatriated the crew and paid the four months wages as provided for in the MLC. The ITF have engaged lawyers to arrest this vessel and claim the remaining wages owed to the crew.
