Investigators have seized documents from the owner of Russia’s transport vessel Nikolai Kasatkin detained in Amsterdam with crew on strike over wage arrears, the Far Eastern investigative department of transport of Russia’s Investigative Committee said on Monday.

The port inspectors of Amsterdam barred the Russian transport ship from leaving the port on December 2.The vessel arrived in the Netherlands from the Barents Sea with the cargo of crab. The ship’s owners owe the crew $90,000 in wage arrears, according to preliminary data.
Inspectors also found out that the crew’s labor contracts contained numerous violations, their health certificates were invalid and safety rules on board the vessel were often neglected.
The crew is running out of food but refuses to end the strike until the wage arrears for more than four months are paid.
