Four machete-wielding masked pirates rob cargo vessel off Bekenu. 30-Sep-2010

Four machete-wielding pirates in a fast-moving small boat boarded a cargo vessel in Sibuti waters on Sunday (26th September) night and robbed the captain and 10 crew members of valuables.

The incident occurred under cover of darkness some 20 nautical miles off Sibuti. The captain and an Iban crew member sustained facial and body injuries after being punched by the four masked pirates who communicated in the Javanese language.

The remaining 9 crews were not hurt in the 8 pm incident. The pirates fled with 7 handphones worth over RM2,000, RM2,500 in cash & a pair of binoculars.

 

 

The Kuching-registered cargo vessel was returning to Kuching from Miri. Thereafter, the captain lodged the piracy report at the Marine Police in Miri and the investigation was underway.
