Indonesia supports Maritime Labour Convention amendment

Jakarta, June 11 - Indonesia has expressed its support for the ratification of the amendment of Maritime Labor Convention (MLC) governing the guarantee of financial rights for seafarers who are victims of pirate hostage or crimes at sea.

"Although so far the number of Indonesian seafarers who have become victims of pirate hostage is relatively small, the MLC amendment is very important considering Indonesia as one of the largest seafarer providers in the world," 

Indonesia has ratified the MLC through the Law no.15 of 2016, which was ratified by President Joko Widodo on October 6, 2016. The Minister of Manpower will officially submit the instrument of MLC ratification to the Director General of the International Labor Organization on June 12, 2017.
