IMO alerts shipping industry about false piracy warnings
THE International Maritime Organization (IMO) said piracy incident warnings from an email account of the Regional Maritime Information Sharing Centre (REMISC) in Sana'a, Yemen, are 'not legitimate'
25 June 2019 - 19:00
'Given the current situation in Yemen, the centre has not been able to provide updated piracy incident information and has temporarily stopped its activities,' the IMO said in a statement.
The warnings have originated from the email firstname.lastname@example.org.
REMISC, in conjunction with the Mombasa and Dar es Salaam Information Sharing Centres, became operational in 2011. The network is used to inform the shipping industry operating in the area of piracy incidents, reports American Shipper.
While the IMO supports REMISC's activities, the organization said it has 'no responsibility or oversight with respect to its current operations'.
