The Myanmar Navy seized an Indonesian fishing boat for illegally entering Myanmar’s territorial waters on the Andaman Sea in Kawthoung District on 6 November.
A Navy vessel found the boat, bearing the name BIN TANG JAS, while patrolling the sea. After the Navy vessel approached them, the fishermen on the boat jumped into the sea. Officials report that one Indonesian fisherman drowned, while the remainder were saved by the Navy.
The 14 fishermen and the illegal boat were handed over to the Kawthoung Township Police Station on 7 November. Action will be taken against the fishermen, under Section 38 (A) (B) of the Fisheries Law.
