Cuban Seamen: stranded in Gabon, Africa without assistance

SinkingCargoShipInGabonAfricaCuban merchant seamen employed by other shipping companies remain abandoned in South Africa near the coast of Gabon without assistance from the Cuban Government to resolve the situation facing them.

The sailors also have not been paid wages for more than five months and the old cargo ship on which they were travelling is on the verge of sinking, for which cause they had to evacuate in order to save their lives.

The Cuban Embassy in the Republic of the Congo has forgotten the seafarers who are abandoned in a jungle village in the South of Gabon.
