Two men in pump boat caught in another blast fishing case

20th September, 2019

By NAZRINI BADARUN

SEMPORNA: Fish blasting remains unabated as two men aged in their 30s were detained by the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) for carrying out the activity on Thursday.

A patrol boat intercepted the pump boat which they were on following a brief pursuit in waters off Pulau Maiga at about 7am, Semporna zone MMEA director Commander Norrimi Hassan said.

A check found both men did not have valid identification documents and also fish bombing equipment on the pump boat, he added.

The pump boat with engine and fish bombs estimated worth RM5,000 were towed to Kem Azumi for further probe under the Fisheries Act 1985 and Immigration Act 1959/63, he said.

MMEA Semporna would step up patrol and enforcement from time to time to curb crimes and other illegal activities in the district waters. Members of the public with information or complaints can channel the details to the MMEA Semporna operation room at 089 782 619 or MERS 999.
