I had the chat with my Angolan contacts. According to them, the Cuteta (fishing vessel) case has been ‘partially’ resolved with part of the wages having been paid. The shipowners apparently came to some sort of agreement with the seafarers to continue to work so they can be paid and they apparently accepted this arrangement. Based on this arrangement between the shipowner and the seafarers concerned, Angola seems to have deemed this issue as resolved.
