Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno LP Marsudi has confirmed that, in the past few months, four Indonesian sailors who had been registered to Chinese fishing vessel Long Xin 629 had died.

The case first entered the public eye after a video allegedly showing Chinese sailors throwing the body of a dead Indonesian crew member overboard went viral.

Two unidentified Indonesian sailors who worked on the vessel spoke to South Korea’s Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) about their experience, claiming that those aboard the ship had endured poor living conditions.

Responding to the issue, the Indonesian Foreign Ministry summoned Chinese Ambassador to Indonesia Xiao Qian on Thursday to express concerns about the alleged mistreatment of Indonesian workers aboard Chinese fishing vessels. (Photo courtesy of MBC)
