ITF (9 March 2023)
We have been informed that the Master, Cook and 2nd Eng were repatriated in December 2022. We are unsure about the Master, but other 2 crewmembers have not been paid and are going to sue the company. Since they left the vessel we have had no new information despite us continuing to press the shipowner, charterer and flag state, as we are really trying to get the outstanding wage for Ch. Eng, who has been waiting for it since August 2022.

Govt. of Panama (19 July 2023)
Through Email dated June 28, 2023, the P&I Club indicated that the transfers took place on Friday, June 23, 2023, for all the previous crewmembers except for 3 of them, indicating that these three transfers could not go through along with the other transfers because they were missing some details from the crew members, but now they have received all the needed information and they will proceed with the payment.
