Criminals increasingly targeting Indonesian ports: World Piracy Report

The monitoring organization has issued a warning telling sailors to take care when entering waters near Anambas, Natuna, Mangkai, Subi, the Merundung islands and at Jakarta’s Tanjung Priok port.

Indonesia alone accounted for 20 percent of incidents reported worldwide during the first six months of 2012. The robbers boarded 32 ships, at times taking hostages and threatening the crew before escaping with engine parts, goods and shipping equipment.

They utilized a number of makeshift weapons during the heists, including crowbars, grappling hooks and knives. In one instance, the robbers boarded a boat docked near Batam Island from a wooden tug and rifled through the contents of 13 containers.

In another they climbed aboard a Singaporean vessel docked at Dumai, Riau, and stole a man’s handheld radio at knifepoint.
