BANGKOK, November 11. /TASS/. The crew of 41 Ukrainian citizens cannot leave a refrigerator ship Ocean Green for more than four months already after the vessel was detained in Indonesia and ran short of food, water and power supplies, Indonesian newspaper Jakarta Post reported on Tuesday.
Panamanian ship Ocean Green was detained for $400,000 debt of a Singaporean leasing company which freighted the ship and is staying at a port of the city of Batam in Riau Province. The ship was detained, director of the Batam port Hery Setiobudi said, noting that authorities urged the shipping company to inform immediately embassies of Panama and Ukraine about the incident, but no progress in settlement of this issue was reached yet. He also noted that Indonesian visas of Ukrainian sailors expired back on November 7.
The refrigerator ship is short of water and food, many crewmembers got sick. The vessel does not have power supplies, because it spent all fuel a long time ago. Port authorities deliver minimal water and food supplies for the crew for humanitarian reasons, as sailors had not received salary for more than four months.
