ITF: Abandoned Crew of Natig Aliyev Paid Outstanding Wages

The 19 crew members of the Maltese-flagged oil products tanker Natig Aliyev have received wages that were outstanding for four months.

A spokesperson of the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) told World Maritime News that an inspection of the vessel on March 2 by an ITF Inspector Morten Bach, the Port State Control, and surveyors from the Malta flag state and the P&I club, led to the immediate payment of outstanding wages.

Over USD 250,000 is believed to have been owed to the crew, manned by Russian and Ukrainian mariners.

“We are awaiting repatriation of the seven crew members who want to return home to be with their loved ones,” the ITF statement reads.

As World Maritime News understands, the oil products tanker is anchored off Aalbaek, Denmark, since the beginning of February.

The small clean tanker, built in 2002, is owned by Palmali Shipping from Turkey, according to the data from VesselsValue.

Based on its latest AIS data, the vessel remains at anchor.
