Marine Police doing patrol in northern coast to prevent illegal fishing
The Timorese National Police (PNTL)‚s Marine Police Unit is currently doing patrol in the northern coast of Timor-Leste to prevent illegal fishing and illegal transitions in the country‚s sea.
The Marine Police are on board the ship called Lusitania, doing patrol in the northern coast of Oe-cusse, Batugede, Dili and Manatuto.
"In our operations we cover the northern coast of the country, but it also depends on the weather. We should have a proper plan before doing patrol, so that we can achieve our objectives" he said.
An Indonesian technician who is currently helping the Marine Police said it was necessary for the Government to provide enough food for the police officers as they had been facing logistic shortcomings.
