Owners of three livestock carriers listed as abandoned last month on the website of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) said the entry is misleading and that their crews are being paid in full.

TradeWinds reported on 5 April that nearly 200 seafarers were reported as abandoned in different parts of the Atlantic by the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) and owed at least two months’ wages.

The vessels in question are the 40,035-gt Ghena (built 1984), 36,387-gt Bader III and 15,608-gt Zein I (both built 1978).
