WORK is progressing well in terms of planning when and where police will destroy the remaining blue boat.

Supervising Police Commissioner Juanita Matanga, responding to questions raised during the Police weekly media conference, reassures the remaining blue boat will be destroyed soon.

She said plans are in place and soon police will do the destruction at an appropriate venue.

Two of the blue boats were destroyed last year at the Central Islands Province and one still remains to which police had made an offer to help destroy.

These are the three Vietnamese ‘Blue Boats’ (fishing boats) that were arrested last year by police and Fisheries officers for illegal fishing within our exclusive economic zone (EEZ).
