Imperial Pacific International (CNMI) LLC told the U.S District Court for the NMI that it is currently in the process of repatriating its Chinese workers.
According to the 26th status report filed by IPI counsel Michael Dotts, IPI has been working with the Chinese Embassy to repatriate their Chinese workers.
“For its Chinese citizens, IPI is still waiting for the Chinese Embassy to approve the proposed flights back to China,” he said.
Dotts reported that the target travel dates for these workers is around the end of July or early August.
Dotts also reported that a couple more former employees were repatriated to the Philippines during the reporting period. Other than these, no major repatriations of former employees took place.
Meanwhile, IPI reports that its payrolls remain up to date with IPI on track to pay the next payroll, which is due on July 16.
During the reporting period, Dotts said no settlement payments were made because the next settlement payment is due on Aug. 1.
In addition, construction work at the Imperial Pacific Resort in Garapan remains suspended.
