Elements of Coast Guard Substation Cagayancillo apprehended a cargo vessel in Palawan for illegally transporting passengers and operating with incomplete documents Friday, December 6.

The Coast Guard discovered the said violations while it was conducting a maritime patrol and boarding inspection on M/L Sharima which was anchored approximately 500 meters off the shoreline of Barangay Mampio, Cagayancillo, Palawan.

The Coast Guard immediately issued Enforcement Inspection/Apprehension Report (EIAR) to M/L Sharima for violating the Headquarters Philippine Coast Guard (HPCG) Memorandum Circular No. 04-98 dated October 20, 1998 for not carrying pertinent documents such as Ship Station License, Minimum Safe Manning Certificate, Coastwise License and Load line Certificate.
