We understand that the remaining crew on board will be paid within a week. Those crew who had been repatriated and had filed a judicial case, have had their money deposited in a bank by Palmali. However, it is known whether they are receiving their wages yet. The vessel is at a shipyard and planned to start trading soon. Vessel is now under Liberia flag.
