Shipping ought to report all piracy incidents

Singapore: All incidents of maritime crime, however petty or even unsuccessful, ought to be reported to local authorities, the executive director of the Regional Cooperation Agreement on Combating Piracy and Armed Robbery against Ships in Asia (ReCAAP) has said.

Speaking with our sister site, Maritime CEO, Yoshihisa Endo said if every incident, however minor, is reported it would enable ReCAAP to provide a more accurate situational picture and provide the information to the respective law enforcement authorities to focus where it matters, as resources are limited.

Endo also had advice for ships transiting the Malacca and Singapore Straits. The full interview can be accessed here.  [11/02/15]
