Shipowner Sam Tariverdi’s Saint James Shipping is back in control of one of its vessels after the intervention of Yemeni military.

The handover of the 17,475-dwt Ariana (built 2016) at the port of Mocha came after a standoff between two rival crews, which TradeWinds has previously reported.

The former Global Radiance Ship Management crew had demanded months of back wages and refused to leave the ship, but it is now paid off and on its way home to Karachi by a circuitous route.
