1. Two incidents have been reported during this period. One Suspicious Approach (initially reported as an Attack and subsequently revised as Suspicious Approach) and one 3rd Party report of a Boarding of a vessel at anchor.
2. It is pointed out that the Suspicious Approach referred in the report overleaf, occurred in the same vicinity of an incident reported in last week’s MDAT-GOG Report. This reinforces the requirement for Masters to remain vigilant and ensure security measures are employed specifically in this location (see chart below).
3. Ships are invited to report to MDAT-GoG any incident or suspect activity.
4. Masters and CSOs are reminded that scamming emails and phishing remains a threat in the GoG maritime area.
