Asian Maritime Crime decreased by 64% - ReCAAP Inforgrapics

Piracy and armed robbery incidents in Asia drop by 64 %
There is a great improvement against piracy and armed robbery in Asia according to Asian piracy watchdog ReCAAP ISC.

They released an infographics concerning about the incidents happened during the half six months of the year (2016).

LOWEST NUMBER OF INCIDENTS YEAR-ON-YEAR 

(FIRST HALF OF 2016)
There are 41 reported incidents from January to June 2016, 2 of which is incident of piracy while the 39 is armed robbery, the lowest in number compared to the past five years. It is a 64% decreased compared to the 2015 number of incidents.

The largest decrease of incidents was on the straits of Malacca and Singapore with only 1 incident in 2016 (which suspects were arrested and stolen items recovered), against the 55 incidents in January – June 2015. This is because of the cooperation on enhanced surveillance and patrol of littoral States.

There were no reports of hijacking of ships for oil cargo theft for 8 months from September 2015 to April 2016. While 2 incidents happen in 2016 versus the 10 incidents on 2015. One incident foiled by Indonesian authorities – perpetrators arrested and cargo recovered.

LOCATION AND STATUS OF SHIPS

Out of the total, 30 of the incidents happened at ports and anchorages, 75% of which occurred in Indonesia and India.
While the other 11 happened on underway:
  • 5 incidents of opportunistic theft
  • 4 incidents of abduction of crew off East Sabah and Southern Philippines
  • 2 incidents of hijacking of ships for oil cargo theft

CONCLUSION

There should always be no grounds for complacency over the great result of the first half of 2016. Authorities should step up surveillance, conduct patrols and initiate timely operation response. Shipping industry should report all incidents immediately to coastal/flag State and ReCAAP Focal Points, exercise enhanced vigilance and adopt best recommended practices.

Until such time that zero incident will happen, we should continue to persevere fighting piracy and armed robbery incidents.

Take a look at ReCAAP’s infographic below for detailed information on incidents against ships in Asia during the first half of the year.
