The First High Criminal Court decided to postpone the case of arresting a resident for assaulting a policeman on a case of shrimp fishing violation, to the first session of December in order to hear the statement and declaration of the accused.


The details indicate that the Coast Guard Command informed about a boat seen at night with its navigation lights off, with two fishermen on it. The marine patrol followed the boat and deliberately collided with it, which caused the fall of a sergeant in which he suffered from injuries. One of the fishermen also fell and after his recovery from the sea it turned out that he suffered some injuries as well. The patrol was able to stop the accused and arrest him, seizing an illegal quantity of fresh shrimp amounting to 30 kg.
