Regional centre in Sanaa fights piracy, armed robbery | Al-Shorfa

Yemen is strengthening efforts to fight piracy and armed robbery on nearby seas alongside 10 other countries through the Regional Maritime Information Sharing Centre in Sanaa.

The centre was established in 2011 but until July 2013 it lacked a presidential decree specifying its duties, said centre head Mohammed al-Majaashi.

The centre now seeks to expand the scope of its activities to include ensuring maritime safety in general, for example combating marine pollution and illegal immigration, and undertaking rescue operations.
