Four Tunisian vessels were caught off Zuwarah shores
The Coast Guard in the city of Zawia announced that they detained 27 Tunisian fishermen in four vessels off Zuwara shores last Thursday, following their illegal entry to the international water.
“The fishermen have now been transferred to the judicial authorities in order to embark on legal measures and investigation,” Said Rami el-Niser, the commander of Zawia’s coast guard.
“El-Niser” has also added that there’s a possibility of releasing the detainees after paying a financial fine and sign a document pledging not to repeat their action.
