Dear Katie,

According to crew in Windsor and the manning agent in Singapore, the owner transferred crew's salaries to the manning agent and it has been already distributed to crews' bank accounts except Bulgarian master.
As the manning agent for him is different from other crews it needs to confirm the payment from the owner.
Regarding repatriation, the owner has yet to arrange flights for all crews and I will request it to the owner.

Dear Fusao
Many thanks for the update. Congratulations on reaching a solution. In terms of status for the database I think we will have to call it disputed until such time as the Masters full wages have been recovered.
Best, Katie
