74 seafarers on board the 'Bader III', which has been reported as abandoned
Ip to 74 seafarers were on board the 'Bader III', which has been reported as abandoned since Feb 15, 2022, at Puerto Cabello in Venezuela. According to The International Transport Workers Federation (ITF), most crew were owed two months wages and a number of Pakistanis on board even six months. The 'Bader III' used to be covered by the West of England. The P&I Club, however, informed the ITF in February that this was no longer the case and the ship's Maritime Labour Convention certificate was cancelled at the end of last November. In May 2021, the ITF reported the 'Bader III' as abandoned. However, the case was resolved by July and the seafarers on the vessel received their wages in full.
