To: Noh, Jinhak Subject: Abou Karim II - update

Dear All
We understand that the crew have left this vessel and that in January they attempted, along with 2 other creditors, to place an arrest on the vessel to get their money back from the owners. However, we further understand that Abou Karim II has now been seized by the Cape Verde maritime authorities as a danger to maritime safety given that there are no seafarers on board. Therefore the arrests have been overtaken by the abandonment procedure.
At this time we do not know what has happened to the seafarers, we are trying to verify but have limited access to information.
Best, Katie

ITF (9 December 2020)
Contact with the crew has been lost and we have closed the case.
