From ITF Arab World and Iran Network Coordinator
We would like to infom that the outstanding wages of nearely all the crew were duly paid untill june included and that 12 seafarers already were repatriated home few days ago.
Nevertheless, there are still 3 filipino crew on board awaiting to be repatriated and that up to today, they have not been yet paid their may and junes wages.
The last update of few minutes ago, is that the 3 crew have their tickets to fly home on monday 05th july, but the wages are not cleeared yet, so we are following and expectant to observe them wages paid, to close definitely this task.
