The crew onboard mentioned vessel has received their pending wages and the issue has been sorted out.
ILO/IMO (14 December 2020)
I duly note that the crew onboard the mentioned vessel has received their pending wages and that the issue has been sorted.
Please also note that according to the database procedures this abandonment case can only be considered as being resolved if, and only if, ILO has received clear advice from ITF that:
.1 the totality of the crew has been successfully repatriated; and
.2 the totality of all outstanding remuneration and contractual entitlements has been paid and duly received by all the crew members.
Therefore, it would be good to hear from ITF, as well as preferably also from Panama, Indonesia , Philippines, Russian Federation, Thailand, and Ukraine, further about the status of this abandonment case.
