IMO Circular: Warning -false piracy information

June 28th 2019
June 20: The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has issued the attached circular, warning of false piracy information. The circular reads:

"The IMO Secretariat would like to draw to the attention of the international maritime community that warnings currently being issued from the email account of the Regional Maritime Information Sharing Centre (REMISC) in Sanaʹa, Yemen (infoex@remisc.org), are not legitimate.

"Given the current situation in Yemen, the centre has not been able to provide updated piracy incident information and has temporarily stopped its activities.

"REMISC – together with the Mombasa and Dar es Salaam Information Sharing Centres (ISC) – is part of the information sharing network established under the Djibouti Code of Conduct (DCoC) framework (article 8 of DCoC and article 11 of the Jeddah Amendments), which became operational in 2011.

"The network is used to exchange information on piracy incidents across the region and other relevant information to help shipping and signatory States to take action to mitigate piracy threats.

"IMO has supported REMISC since its establishment and operationalization. However, the Organization has no responsibility or oversight with respect to its current operations. "
