JAKARTA – The Maritime Security Agency (Bakamla) intercepted a Chinese research vessel on Wednesday evening whose automatic tracking system had been inactive at three separate times as it passed through Indonesian waters.

 “KN Pulau Nipah 321 intercepted Chinese research vessel Xiang Yang Hong 03 on Wednesday evening at about 8 p.m. while it was passing through the Sunda Strait,” Bakamla chief spokesman Col. Wisnu Pramandita said in a statement on Friday.

He noted that the Chinese vessel was traveling at 10.9 knots and was heading southwest.

The ship’s Automatic Identification System (AIS), Wisnu added, was inactive during three intervals as it passed through Indonesian Archipelagic Sea Lane (ALKI) I – in the North Natuna Sea, the South Natuna Sea and the Karimata Strait.
