Indonesia: Vessel detentions

There has been an increase of incidents where vessels anchored in the waters around the island of Bintan, in the Eastern portion of the Singapore Straits, have been detained.

Bintan is a popular place to anchor (“waiting for orders”) because it is close to shipping lanes and believed to be OPL Singapore but it is in fact within Indonesian territorial waters.

We are grateful to SPICA for having prepared the attached outline of the issue along with their recommendations.
