Ship Smuggling Ancient Artifacts Seized

Friday, January 20, 2006
According to the Jakarta Post, police had confiscated a foreign ship and arrested six crew members for trying to smuggle ancient artifacts out of Indonesia. The arrest followed tip-offs from the Culture and Tourism Ministry and the Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry. The Vanuatu-flagged ship, Sirens, was being held at Tanjung Priok Port after ancient artifacts from Cirebon were found on board. The boat's captain did not have a permit from the Culture and Tourism Ministry to carry such items. The destination of the ship is unknown. Police found 27 tons of black tin inside the ship along with the artifacts. (Source: www.thejakartapost.com)
