No Escape From Justice: Two More Arrests for Operation Sola Stella

One fishing vessel caught red-handed with forged documents and a long history of toothfish poaching, and another trawler that tries to escape detention by making a run for it under the cover of darkness.

Both are apprehended by Liberian Coast Guard with the assistance of Sea Shepherd using the M/Y Sam Simon patrol vessel. Captain Alistair Allan describes the 12th (Hung Lai) and 13th (Benty 1) arrests since the start of Operation Sola Stella, working in partnership with the Liberian authorities to end illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing activities in Liberia, West Africa.
