SIX armed robberies took place in May aboard ships, down 22 per cent year on year, reports the Regional Cooperation Agreement on Combating Piracy and Armed Robbery against ships in Asia, abbreviated as ReCP which include the Information Sharing Centre (ISC).

Of the incidents reported in May, three occurred on board ships at anchor/berth (at Kandla in India; and Dumai and Cigading in Indonesia) and four incidents on board ships while underway (off Pulau Mapur, Indonesia; off Mindanao, Philippines in the Pacific Ocean; and off Tanjung Piai, Malaysia in the Singapore Strait).



Of the six actual incidents reported in May 2019, one was a CAT 2 incident and five were CAT 4 incidents.



As the threat of abduction of crew in the Sulu-Celebes Seas and waters off eastern Sabah remains, ReCP ISC maintains its advisory issued via the ReCP ISC Incident Alert to all ships to reroute from the area, where possible.



Otherwise, ship masters and crew are strongly urged to exercise extra vigilance while transiting the area, and report immediately to the Operation Centres of Philippines and Eastern Sabah Security Command (ESSCOM) of Malaysia.
