    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The authorities in Costa Rica announced the arrest of three Nicaraguans for fishing in the protected area surrounding Cocos Island,  which has been declared a Natural Heritage Site.

    The Security Ministry said in a statement that the subjects had launched a fishing line within the 12 nautical miles from Cocos Island National Park where fishing is prohibited.

    The Costa Rican Coast Guard detained the fishermen last Monday and they seized their boat called “Immanuel” after the crew of the ship tried to ram them.

    These individuals face charges for illegal fishing, resisting arrest, and possibly for the crime of attempting to wreck the coast guard ship.

    “Fishing in protected areas and national parks can be sanctioned under the crime of piracy, whose sentences range from three to 15 years in prison,” said the Ministry of Security.

    Cocos Island, located about 500 kilometers off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, is a place of great natural wealth, especially in terms of marine biodiversity, and was declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1997. (ACAN-EFE)
