KUWAIT CITY, Oct 22: Kuwait Fishermen Union Chairman Dhaher Al-Suwayan has confirmed the return of sea pirates and robbers in a remarkable way, such that armed robbery happened in more than 20 fishing vessels in less than three days, reports Al-Qabas daily. In a press statement, Al-Suwayan disclosed: “Many fishermen in Fahaheel and Sharq no longer want to fish due to the lack of security for them; especially since the pirates usually steal all the fishing equipment, navigation devices, air conditioners, personal properties and their catch for the day — fish and shrimp.”

He said two red boats with four pirates each were seen recently, stressing that the situation is dangerous; hence, the need for action on the part of the concerned authorities and protection for Kuwaiti fishing vessels. He hopes the concerned authorities will address this issue and establish a fixed security checkpoint in the commercial waters; so the Kuwaiti fishermen can fish safely to supply the local market with fish and shrimp, affirming the union has informed the concerned authorities.
