The International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) has called for two ships lying in Danish ports to be sold in an auction to pay debts to crew members who have not been paid by the shipowners. The first will be the Saint Vincent-flagged, Danish-owned Lis Weber, which will be auctioned on November 18 in order to pay around DKK 500,000 to the Ukranian and Lithuanian crew members. The vessel is part of the bankrupt' estate of C J Helt & Co, Svendborg, and has been laid up at Svendborg since October 2009 along with three company sisters. The other vessel, which will be auctioned later in November, is the Cormorant. Three crew members from Russia and Ghana have been stuck onboard the vessel in Frederiksværk since December 2009. The owner left for the Christmas holiday in Germany and never returned to his ship.
