Sailors abandoned for 43 months on board a tanker off the coast of Umm Al Quwain are finally set to return home after agreeing to a settlement on outstanding salaries.

The five crew, chief engineer Nay Win, second engineers Riasect Ali and Vinay Kumar and ordinary seamen Nirmal Singh Bora and Monchand Shaikh agreed to a payout of $165,000 on Monday...

Two cheques handed over to the Mission to Seafarers charity were presented on Tuesday, to deliver 50 per cent of what the sailors are owed in wages for their work on board the ship...

The crew will be taken to Dubai Maritime City where they will wait 15 days for legal work on the sale of the vessel to be completed.

They will then be paid the rest of the money they are owed...

Alco has agreed to cover the cost of repatriating the men to their countries in what will be an emotional family reunion.
