MMEA seized fishing boat

KOTA KINABALU:  The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) here seized an abandoned fishing boat at a mangrove forest near Kampung Baru-Baru, Kota Belud yesterday evening.

The boat, believed to have belonged to a group of smugglers was abandoned by a man upon seeing a team of MMEA personnel approaching in his direction about 4.10pm.

In a statement here today, Kota Kinabalu MMEA maritime enforcement chief, Capt Zin Azman Md Yunus said the unregistered, seven-metre long boat was seized to facilitate investigations.

He said the boat engine was wantonly damaged by the man before he escaped to Teluk Ambong.- BERNAMA
