Written by Deckson N.

The Hong Da 1, a Chinese fishing boat, has been arrested in the town of Manoka, off the coast of Cameroon. The boat, whose crew was made up of local and Asians, was immediately taken to Douala, the economic capital.

According to information supplied by the National Marine, this boat, which still had no capture, probably ready to fish within 5 km of the coast in an area legally dedicated to artisan fishing and non-industrial. In addition, we learn, the trawler is dangerously approaching the SAT3 submarine cable, whose deployment has led the ban on navigation in this area.

To believe an authoritative source, it’s┬áCAMTEL, incumbent telecom operator and the cable, which, through its surveillance system detected the presence of this ship off the coast of Cameroon and seized the navy for his arrest.
