I started to do my errands that day Ifinished around 8:10pm, At GF hallway,I saw Cadet (not in uniform) I ask him of he is a Cadet in he said yes and i told him that I will get my bag. We go inside the crew lounge and I gave him my stub number, I noticed that only my bag is left in the shelf. While Cadet get my bag in the shelf, i saw that he close the zipper of my bag. I ask him why he close the zipper he said, he close it because it is open. I felt something wrong so I immediately open my bag, and to my dismay, my laptop is gone what's left is it's charger. I reported it to the Guard on duty. Cadet said that they're duty is only til 7pm.
I just don't understand why they left my bag unattended. The duty til 7pm doesn't mean they have no obligation to secure all the bags left. They said that the policy is that if there's still bag left inthe seaman's lounge, the cadet in charge should find the owner of the bag.
In this case, can I sue the company and demand to replace my stolen laptop? Are the company obliged? Pls help i already told them that I will not accept what happen and i want a replacement its been a month but no action from them. they said that investigatoon was done and they will wait for the top managements decision.
