Death of Master, Food and Water Shortages and Failure in State Support leaves Crew Desperate

London. UK.  Following the unexpected death on 19 April 2021 of the Romanian Master of the MV VANTAGE WAVE (IMO: 9506514) Human Rights at Sea has been asked by the deceased's family, and instructed by Gard P&I insurers on behalf of owners’ and crew members’ interests, to bring urgent international attention to the case of the continued failure to repatriate the body after seven weeks by multiple States. The onboard situation is further exacerbated by a rapidly emerging issue of food and water shortages, with resupply and dis-embarkment permissions allegedly being denied by local Chinese authorities at the time of writing.
