Troopers of the 901st Maritime Station based at the Zamboanga city port seized seven motor launch pumpboats during continuing operations against unregistered pumpboats in seas off Zamboanga city.

Regional Martime Unit-9 Chief Sr Supt Pedro Soliba disclosed that the seized pumpboats either had expired registration papers or none at all.

The pumpboat operators were advised to pay fines and penalties at the City Agriculturist Office.

Soliba said that the Maritime operations are being conducted continuously to ensure the identification of all pumpboats in the area.

Lawless elements have used pumpboats to enter Zamboanga city where they conduct their criminal activities.

“Tuloy tuloy itong mga operations namin sa panghuhuli ng mga unregistered pumpboats sa region-9,” said Soliba.  (Allen Abastillas)
