PIRACY ATTACK AT TANJUNG PRIOK HARBOUR, INDONESIA – WARNING TO MEMBERS

A bulk carrier operated by one of our members was boarded by a gang of 6 pirates whilst it lay at anchor in Tanjung Priok Harbour, Indonesia, on 24 July. The pirates, who were armed, tied up the watch keeper, gained access to the engine room and stole various valuable engine spares. Thankfully none of the crew was harmed in the attack. This is a further illustration of the dangers owners face when trading to this region.
