This is absurd, it happens way more often than we think but four years is unheard of. Why authorities are not letting them go home? And where the fuck is ILO when needed? After all this time aground the vessel is to be considered a total loss so the underwriter should also have some say in this story. And what about the bank probably owning the vessel? If the owner has gone bankrupt the bank should be the one paying the crew now.
Lots of responsibilities around here but in the end the seafarers are the only ones suffering.
