|Comments and Observations:||ITF (7 April 2022)|
The crew of the Duyen Hai remain onboard.
The crew have now been on board for 16 months (and without contracts since September) throughout which they have had constant issues with late payment of wages, been denied contractual entitlements and seen the owners repeatedly break their promises.
The crew have been asking for repatriation since December 2021.
ITF (6 May 2022)
All outstanding wages have been received by the crew and they were repatriated on 6th May 2022.
