Five vessels from Philippines, Vietnam caught fishing illegally in Indonesian waters

first_imgThe arrests were conducted by three vessels of the directorate general in two different locations that were monitoring the area. He said the intensity of monitoring remained the same despite the coronavirus pandemic, as the ministry aimed to uphold the sovereignty of fisheries management in the country.“We are prepared for any increase in illegal vessels operating in [Indonesian waters] amid the spread of COVID-19. That is why we are not decreasing our operations as illegal fishing is still rampant,” he said in a statement on Sunday.In Sulawesi waters, the three Philippine-flagged vessels raised Indonesian flags to trick patrols, but personnel managed to detect them, he added. Officials apprehended 34 Filipino crewmen from the three vessels.Six Vietnamese crewmen were apprehended from two Vietnam-flagged vessels caught in the North Natuna Sea.The arrests came just a week after the ministry arrested two illegal foreign vessels from Vietnam in the North Natuna Sea.Edhy explained that the arrests were the result of cooperation between personnel of the directorate general’s control center and the technical unit, which monitor and inform the location of illegal foreign vessels to the joint Supervision Unit that conducted the raids.As part of efforts to strengthen protection of the country’s maritime resources, Edhy said he was considering adding operating days to eradicate illegal fishing.Topics : The Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry has seized five foreign-flagged vessels caught fishing illegally in Indonesian waters as sea patrols remain vigilant during the COVID-19 pandemic.The ministry’s Marine and Fisheries Resources Supervision Directorate General seized three Philippines-flagged vessels and two Vietnamese-flagged vessels in the North Natuna Sea and Sulawesi Sea on Saturday, Minister Edhy Prabowo said.last_img read more

Club set to terminate Balotelli’s contract

Balotelli has earned a reputation as a troublemaker during his career.It was a career in which he has played for Inter Milan, Manchester City, AC Milan, Liverpool, Nice and Olympique de Marseille, and won 36 international caps.A television station had reported that Balotelli was involved in a row with Brescia president Massimo Cellino.This was after the striker did not return to training when COVID-19 restrictions were eased in the country.The report said Balotelli was offered a consensual termination, which he refused, and the club then sent a letter to his lawyer saying his contract would be ended. Balotelli has scored five league goals in 19 appearances this season for a struggling Brescia side who are bottom of the league standings.They are nine points from the safety zone with 12 games left.Serie A, suspended on March 9 due to the coronavirus pandemic, is due to resume on June 20.Reuters/NAN.Tags: AC MilanBresciaLiverpoolMario BalotelliSerie Alast_img read more

Ashley adamant he won’t sell

first_img Press Association Rumours have been rife that the sportswear magnate was preparing to offload the club he bought in 2007 and snap up cash-strapped Rangers instead. However, the Magpies moved on Friday to dismiss the claims, in the process banning the Daily Telegraph for its coverage of the story. If Friday’s statement suggested stability in the boardroom, Pardew’s position remains less assured despite sources on Tyneside denying claims he has just two games in which to save his job. Saturday’s trip to Southampton and Hull’s visit to Tyneside the weekend after are undoubtedly key games for the 53-year-old, who is still awaiting a first Barclays Premier League win of the campaign, although he has asked for patience as he attempts to bed in his summer signings. The Magpies recruited nine new faces during the close season, seven of whom are fighting for first-team places with Daryl Janmaat, Jack Colback, Remy Cabella, Siem de Jong and Emmanuel Riviere having been thrown in at the deep end during the opening weeks of the campaign. However, only former Sunderland midfielder Colback arrived with any experience of the Premier League, and some of his new team-mates have endured a rude awakening to life in English football. Pardew said: “I think it’s a little bit tougher when players are coming from abroad and have to adjust to the Premier League. “I’d give Manu (Riviere) as an example. I spoke to him today and there are certain things that happen in this league which he’s been surprised by. It shakes players up and knocks them off balance a bit. “Remy’s treatment has been similar. People have said to me that he needs to be stronger, and I’d agree with that. But I also think he’s come in for some treatment that he would never have got in France, so he’s having to adjust his game as well. “Making those adjustments are very important, but they need time.” Cabella in particular will head for the south coast with an extra burden on his shoulders in the wake of De Jong’s absence for up to three months with a thigh injury which could yet require surgery. The two men were recruited in a bid to replace the creativity and firepower lost in the departures of Cabaye and Loic Remy, but De Jong’s misfortune has increased the onus on the Frenchman. Pardew said: “There’s more focus on him now, and I think he’s started okay. He can be better, but we’ve got to give him a platform to do that. “We also have other offensive players who will have to step up to the plate. Papiss (Cisse) is due back soon and he needs to score goals again. We need to find a way for him to score goals. “Will he play with Manu? Maybe there’s an opportunity for those two to form a relationship.” Mike Ashley has ended speculation that he is ready to sell Newcastle by insisting the club is not for sale at any price for the immediate future. A statement said: “The truth is, Mike Ashley remains committed to Newcastle United. “For the avoidance of doubt, this means that for the remainder of this season and at least until the end of next season, Mike Ashley will not, under any circumstances, sell Newcastle United at any price. “The club cannot be stronger in stating its position on this matter.” The news may come as a blow to Ashley’s most vociferous critics, who still rail against his treatment of Kevin Keegan and Alan Shearer, his decision to twice appoint Joe Kinnear to positions of power at St James’ Park, his renaming of the stadium and the sponsorship deal struck with payday lender Wonga. But above all, supporters remain furious at a perceived lack of ambition, with comfortable Barclays Premier League survival the major focus. Ashley has rationalised the club’s operations to the point where they are self-sufficient, a far cry from the position in which he found Newcastle when he snapped them up for £134.4million and then had to make interest-free loans totalling around £129million. However, his financial realism means there is no wild spending on transfers, and while manager Alan Pardew has been able to invest heavily this summer, that spending spree has been funded largely by the proceeds from the sales of Yohan Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy. Ashley, of course, has twice tried to sell the club during his reign to date and in effect, it has been available for much of the last six years, although no credible buyers have emerged and there is no potential deal currently in the pipeline. last_img read more
