Its media spokesman Ananda Palitha said that an agreement has been reached to pay a delay of one hundred thousand dollars per day for the ship. He also said that a ship with refined fuel that arrived 37 days ago had been anchored in the international waters.

He said the ship, which arrived on March 28, was still anchored in international waters due to the inability to pay the relevant dollars and that the ship would have to pay $ 18,000 a day, adding that this would be the most delayed fuel ship in history.

He added that even though the delay on a crude oil tanker is around $ 25,000 a day, late payments and instant purchases are becoming a racket and eight ships have been late this year.
