澳大利亚禁止aframax油轮AG Neptune 6个月，原因是该油轮未能全额支付船员工资，并违反了《海事劳工公约》(MLC)。
Australia has banned the aframax tanker AG Neptune for six months for failure to fully pay crew wages and other Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) violations.
6月17日，澳大利亚海事安全局 (AMSA) 在收到有关海员工资过低和其他福利问题的投诉后，在格莱斯顿港对这艘船进行了检查后扣留了该船。这艘 2013 年建造的油轮悬挂着利比里亚国旗，在新加坡由OCM Maritime Flyer拥有。
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) had detained the vessel after it was inspected on 17 June in the Port of Gladstone following a complaint on underpayment of seafarers and other welfare issues. The 2013-built tanker is flagged with Liberia, and owned in Singapore by OCM Maritime Flyer.
The Australian authorities found the ship’s crew of 21 were owed A$123,000 in underpaid wages, food and drinking water were not of appropriate quality, quantity and nutritional value for seafarers. Seafarers had been repeatedly not paid at regular intervals and two crew had expired employment agreements.
Adding to the catalogue of misery AMSA said it also was understood a seafarer had not been provided with adequate medical care after being injured onboard.
The owner was ordered to pay wages owed to the crew and correct other deficiencies before being barred from Austrlian ports and waters for six months.
“Australia has zero tolerance for the underpayment of crew. This type of behaviour is unethical and in contravention to the MLC. The international conventions that protect seafarers’ rights are very clear,” AMSA’s Executive Director of Operations Michael Drake.
“Ships visiting Australian ports are on notice that if we find deliberate underpaying of crew they can expect penalties.”
Australia routinely bars vessels for failure to comply with the MLC and other maritime conventions.
