The Indonesian crew are all back home but still not paid.
The Harbour Master and the Director for Maritime Affairs in Djibouti have been repeatedly requested to assist and to have PSC visit the vessel but they bever responded.
The ship is most probably stateless at the moment and probably without a valid P&I
