AUSTRALIA ADMITS LATENESS IN NOTIFIFYING RI ABOUT 49 FISHERMEN'S ARREST

Canberra - The Australian government has admitted it was late in notifying Indonesia about the recent apprehension of 49 Indonesian fishermen for trespassing Australian waters, Indonesian Ambassador to Australia and Vanuatu Hamzah Thayeb said in Canberra on Wednesday (23/05).

He said the 49 Indonesian fishermen aboard six boats were arrested by Australian authorities in Australia’s Northern Territory waters on May 16, but the Indonesian government was notified about it much later.

Hamzah expressed hope that no such delay would happen again in the future in order to prevent Australian and Indonesian media from blowing it up. "If the Australian government had informed us as early as possible, we could have handled the problem to the best of our capability,"  Hamzah said.

He said, while the Indonesian fishermen were arrested on May 16, the Indonesian government was informed about it only early this week after the media had reported it.

Meanwhile, Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman, Kristiarto Legowo said in Jakarta on Monday (21/05) that the Indonesian Consulate official in Darwin, Australia, has met with one of 49 Indonesian fishermen who were arrested in Australian Northern Territory waters for poaching. “The Indonesian Consulate official has met with one of the Indonesian fishermen and an embassy official from Canberra will also meet him on Tuesday (22/05) as part of efforts to assist the fishermen," Kristiarto Legowo said.

He said the 49 Indonesian fishermen were at present being held at Darwin detention center. "The 49 illegal fishermen are from six fishing boats. They are accused of poaching in Australian territorial waters and therefore, they are now in a Darwin detention center," he said.

Kristiarto said the fishermen were brought to Darwin last Saturday (19/05) aboard ACV Triton after they were spotted by an Australian reconnaissance plane. If the fishermen are found guilty, they would lose their boats because it was the Australian government's policy to burn the boats of convicted foreign fishermen (Antara, 24/05/07).
