Twenty-three Vietnamese crewmen, who are victims of the blazing fishing vessel Jeong Woo 2 of the Republic of Korea will get compensation.

According to the Department for Overseas Workers Management under the Ministry of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs, the ship’s owner committed to pay compensations to those victims.

The Vietnamese labour companies are working with insurance companies for interests for Vietnamese sailors.

Those companies gave 20 million VND to each family of the three missing sailors. Each family of these missing sailors will receive at most 16,000 USD from Bao Minh Insurance Company.

Vessel Jeong Woo caught fire 2,000 miles from New Zealand on Jan. 11./.
