Govt. of Bulgaria (7 January 2021)
From Executive Agency “Maritime Administration” (EAMA)
Crew complaint in connection with MLC 2006 of m/v Deniz S, Flag - Republic of Sierra Leone - New (United Rebublic of Tanzania – Old) , IMO - 8103389, has been resolved. The vessel was inspected and released from detention at port of Burgas, Bulgaria on 18.12.2020 at 17:45 hrs local time.
The vessel discharged her cargo at port of Burgas, Bulgaria and will proceed to Tuzla repair yard in Turkey, to rectify outstanding deficiencies.

ILO/IMO (8 January 2021)
It could not be verified on IMO GISIS that the registration from Zanzibar (United Republic of Tanzania) would have changed to that of Sierra Leone with IMO Number 8103389. Therefore, I herewith include Mr. Mark Kryzak of IHS Market to do a further check on that information.
Please also further note that according to the database procedures this abandonment case concerning the ‘DENIZ S’ can only be considered as being resolved if, and only if, ILO has received clear advice from ISWAN through ICS 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 ICS on behalf of ISWAN, as well as from Zanzibar (United Republic of Tanzania), further about the status of this abandonment case.

Non-governmental Organization (13 January 2021)
The crew have been paid their pending wages and they have been repatriated. This case is closed now.
