Ecuadorīs Maritime Authorty would like to inform IMOīs Legal Affairs Office, the following:

- The Port State Controller has carried out two inspections on the Panamanian flagged vessel "RUN DE", after wich no foreign personnel have been found on board. We can report that only seafarers with ecuadorian nationality were found. The ecuadorian maritime authority in its report inform that the foreign seafarers were replaced by ecuadorian seafarers.

- On the 10th of July 2023, the Maritime Authority of Ecuador sent the report of the second port state inspection to the Maritime Authority of Panama in order to resolve the on going issues.

- In August 2023, a third port state inspection was carried out: it was found that the deficiencies that prevent the safe navigation of the vessel are yet to continue, meaning that the RUN DE will be kept detained.

- The Harbor Master of Guayaquil has requested the shipping agency in charge of the RUN DE to produce the airplane tickets for the foreign seafarers as proof of their repatriation process. So far no results have been achivied"

Other (30 August 2023)

I refer to the details below of the RUN DE, IMO No 9051741 which has been reported to be entered with the UK P&I Club. I have contacted the Club who have informed me that this vessel has not been insured by the UK P&I Club. I would be grateful if you could update the records and remove UK P&I Club as the insured entity.

ITF (5 September 2023)
All Filipino crew were repatriated after applied pressure from Panamanian Maritime Authority and the Department of Migrant Workers of Philippines. Owners claim to have paid wages but no confirmation of payments made has been received

ITF (17 October 2023)
All seafarers who complained have received their outstanding wages.
