PARIS, October 28 (Reuters) – The Ministry of the Sea on Thursday announced the verbalization of two English ships by the maritime gendarmerie after several checks off Le Havre.
“Two English vessels fishing in French waters have been fined”, it was stated in the press release.
One of the ships was fined for obstructing control after refusing to comply with the request to board the maritime gendarmes. The second was not on the lists of licenses granted to the United Kingdom by the European Commission and France. This ship was diverted to Le Havre by the gendarmerie.
