Indonesian authorities are seeking to tackle the growing trend of pirates targeting tankers in South Asian waters for hijacking and cargo thefts.
This includes the planned establishment by the Indonesian Marine Police of designated safe anchorages within some ports, which will be monitored and patrolled regularly.
These designated areas (with coordinates) are:
Tanjung Priok: 06:00.30S-106:54.00E
Adang Bay: 01:40.00S-116:40.00E
Muara Berau: 00:17.00S-117:36.00E
Muara Jawa: 01:09.00S-117:13.00E
Further details will be provided as available.
