Govt. of China (31 March 2022)
Having a closer look into the reported case, it is noted that the vessel in question is registered under the flag of Togo, and the shipowner is located in Hong Kong, China.
We have made several attempts in contacting the shipowner, but has not been successful and received no reply.
The concerned vessel is not registered under the Hong Kong Flag nor located in the waters of Hong Kong.
On this basis, actions to be taken by the Hong Kong Flag Administration and/or port authority is limited if at all possible.

7 Chinese received a total wage sum of US$16,380 and signed an agreement with the owner. Remaining owed wages will be paid once they leave the vessel.
