This was confirmed by  the Lobiti Port’s technical and safety manager Joaquim Sobrinho, who put at Akz 700,000 (USD1.133,23 equivalent) the amount spent on rehabilitation work of the four-meter-long motorboat.

Speaking to Angop, the source also announced plans for recovery of  other  three crippled vessels aimed to patrol the entire length of the bay.

 “The bay was vulnerable to poachers and the great fear was the possibility of some net launched by them being wrapped around the propeller of some large foreign vessel. It would be a scandal that would tarnish both the image of Porto and the country ”, he said.
