The International Maritime Organization said piracy incident warnings from a Regional Maritime Information Sharing Centre email account in Yemen aren’t legitimate.
The International Maritime Organization said piracy incident warnings from an email account of the Regional Maritime Information Sharing Centre (REMISC) in Sana’a, Yemen, are “not legitimate.”
“Given the current situation in Yemen, the center has not been able to provide updated piracy incident information and has temporarily stopped its activities,” the IMO said in a statement.
The warnings have originated from the email firstname.lastname@example.org.
REMISC, in conjunction with the Mombasa and Dar es Salaam Information Sharing Centers, became operational in 2011. The network is used to inform the shipping industry operating in the area of piracy incidents.
While the IMO supports REMISC’s activities, the organization said it has “no responsibility or oversight with respect to its current operations.”
