9 Arrested Over Illegal Fishing


The UPDF fisheries protectorate unit wants government to set up special courts for errant fishermen. Capt Joseph Ssebukeera the Commander of the Fisheries Protectorate Unit in Busoga sub region says regular courts are doing them a disservice in the fight against illegal fishing hence the need for special courts to handle specifically fishing related cases. Captain Ssebukeera was in Jinja during an operation in which fishermen were arrested for engaging in illegal activities on Lake Victoria.
