KUALA LUMPUR JULY 24: The Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) ship, KD Laksamana Hang Nadim once again had succeeded to break the aggression of six foreign fishermen’s boats by driving them out near Jarak Island (Perak) at about 2.15pm today.
RMN in its statement said, earlier the West Armada Operation Centre (POA) had received information from the Control Reporting Centre (CRC) Kuantan on the detection of six foreign fishermen’s boats near Jarak Island via an aircraft CL415 MP belonging to the Malaysia Maritime Enforcement Agency (APMM).
“The detection was channelled to KD Laksamana Hang Nadim that had been patrolling the nearby areas following eight foreign fishermen’s boats were driven out from Malaysian waters yesterday.
“KD Laksamana Hang Nadim then drove out all the six foreigners’ boats until they left the national water borders today.
“It was clear that the strategic planning of the operation (Op Benteng Laut) based on the information and trend had succeeded in breaking the actions and elements of breaching the laws and intruding the sovereignty of the national waters.
“Apart from that RMN will always empower its patrolling activities and enhance its integrated cooperation with all the maritime agencies at the national waters to ensure the sovereignty and the safety of Malaysian Maritime Zone remains protected,” the statement said.–Malaysia World News
