According to reports, one of the assaults was against a Mexican-flagged supply ship – the Buccaneer – sailing in the Campeche waters. Testimonies indicate that at least five suspects surprised the crew about five nautical miles from the Dos Bocas Maritime Terminal.
Similarly, the ship Telford 28 was attacked and robbed 25 kilometers from the port of Isla del Carmen, also in Campeche.
In this case, one of the crew members was injured – it is known that there were 300 people, among them sailors and workers.
According to the Secretary of the Navy, there are no protocols for ships to avoid these assaults by pirates. According to a source at Reforma, if the raids continue, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) could analyze the situation and declare the Campeche Sound as a piracy zone as has happened in countries like Indonesia, the Philippines, or Malaysia.
