Dear All
See below update on the Anatoly Kolesov case.
So all seafarers are now repatriated but we cannot confirm that they have been paid - which seems unlikely.
At this point I would call this case 'disputed'.
Best, Katie

$600 000 to the shipyard
$60 000 to the agent
some fines to HM
vessel still needs minor repairs to be fully operational
other vessels from company’s fleet also detained/arrested
