The three incidents occurred in close proximity to each other and in particular, two incidents occurred within an interval of four hours. In all three incidents, the perpetrators were sighted in the engine room. However, nothing was reported stolen and the crew was safe with no confrontation with the perpetrators, ReCAAP said in the warning.

ReCAAP warned of the possibility of further incidents and ships transiting the busy shipping are advised to adopt extra precautionary measures and enhanced vigilance.
