Anti Piracy Operations

Anti Piracy Operations There are no observable threats by state actors to the safety of the large number of commercial vessels that ply Southeast Asian waters. The main threat to the safety of navigation comes from piracy.59 Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, the littoral states along the maritime passageway through the Straits of Malacca and Singapore, have conducted coordinated anti?piracy patrols since July 2005. In September 2005, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore joined once again to launch coordinated air patrols over the Malacca Strait, known as Eyes in the Sky.60 An agreement on standard operating procedures and a cooperative air surveillance and intelligence exchange group was agreed in 2006. Two years later, Thailand joined the scheme. In 2004, Japan successfully initiated the Regional Cooperation Agreement on Combating Piracy and Armed Robbery Against Ships in Asia (ReCAAP). ReCAAP was the first government?to? government agreement to enhance maritime security in regional waters. All the ASEAN maritime states became charter members as well as Japan, China, South Korea, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The major functional component of ReCAAP is the Information Sharing Centre based in Singapore that serves as a clearinghouse for information exchange and
operational cooperation in responding to incidents of piracy and armed robbery at sea. As a result of these efforts piracy attacks fell from a peak of 75 in 2000 to 38 in 2004, 10 in 2005 and a handful thereafter. Of particular concern is the rise of piracy in the South China Sea. The International Maritime Bureau reported 13 cases of piracy in 2009, 30 in 2010 and 41 by July 2011.61 A different set of figures gathered by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) reveals that incidents of piracy and armed robbery increased from 406 in 2009 to 489 in 2010. There were 214 incident in the first quarter of 2011 alone. The IMO’s figures also highlighted the increase in piracy in the South China Sea. Nevertheless, the threat of piracy in Southeast Asia appears contained and is well below the levels of piracy off the coast of Somalia.62
