Bahamas-flagged livestock carrier MV Maysora, which was detained while in Fremantle on Tuesday, September 18, by Australian authorities, has been released from detention.

The ship was detained after a surveyor of Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA ) confirmed the reports that the crew members on board were not being paid their regular wages.

Local media reported that the 19 members of the crew, mostly of Pakistani nationality, walked off the ship this week, due to the wage dispute. The seafarers were detained by the Australian Border Force and prevented from leaving the country.

“On Thursday, September 20, an AMSA surveyor returned to MV Maysora and released the vessel from detention after the operator demonstrated crew had been paid and plans were in place for ongoing payment of crew wages,” AMSA told World Maritime News in a statement.

The vessel, which remains moored in Fremantle, based on its latest AIS data, can now continue its voyage.
