15 Free Neptune seamen, who had to spend more than a year and a half in the Asian Oman, returned to Ukraine. This is reported by the Department of Consular Service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, reports Ukrainska Pravda.
“The way home for more than a year and a half was accompanied by active negotiations with the shipowner, the port authorities and law enforcement authorities of Oman,” the statement said. It is noted that seamen fell into trouble due to lack of knowledge of the history of the shipowner and the rights and obligations of the parties in accordance with the contract concluded. Crew members even hunger strike to draw attention to their situation.
