Cargo ship and 22 crew members in limbo in waters near Victoria
Korean company operating Hanjin Vienna went into receivership 7 weeks ago
A container ship and its 22 member crew remains stranded off the coast of Victoria, seven weeks after the financial collapse of the company operating the vessel.
Korea's Hanjin Shipping went in to receivership at the end of August and the 279 metre Hanjin Vienna has been in legal limbo ever since.
According to reports the crew on the ship are being well cared for and supplies are being delivered to the ship thanks to the German company which owns the vessel.
Both the Hanjin Vienna and the Hanjin Scarlett, which was in Prince Rupert when the financial troubles hit, were placed under arrest last month due to millions of dollars in unpaid bills.
It's not clear when the legal issues will be resolved.
Officials say the Hanjin Vienna, which is anchored at Constance Banks near Victoria, does not pose a hazard.
