A Vietnamese seafarer who jumped ship in Albany and swam to shore over the weekend created headlines and a Covid-19 scare in Western Australia.
Ho Anh Dung allegedly swam to shore and checked into a hostel before being apprehended by authorities. He tested negative for Covid-19 and is now waiting a day in court later this week. His ship, the Sakizaya Champion bulk carrier, is due to leave Albany for South Africa today.
The 37-year-old was charged with breaching Covid-19 protocols.
