Georgian border guards have arrested a Turkish vessel "ISIK-3" for illegal entry into the territorial waters of Abkhazia without the consent of the Georgian side, the News.BCM reported.


By the fact of entry into the territorial waters of Abkhazia, the captain of the vessel and its crew have violated the law of Georgia on Occupied Territories. The captain of the vessel will be charged; he faces a prison sentence of 2 to 5 years. In special cases, such offense provides a penalty in the form of fine, amount of which will be determined by the court.

Currently, the arrested vessel under the Turkish flag is at the penalty parking in the port of Poti.

As reported by the Border Police, the detention, official cause of which was "breaking the rules of navigation", occurred in the territorial waters near the village of Sarpi on the border with Turkey. Then the arrested ship was towed to the port city of Batumi.
