Piracy Benin

Considering the increase of pirates attacks in the Gulf of Guinea, the authorities of Benin have shown concern and they have taken further measures to prevent such attacks. 

It is now imposed to every vessel bound for the Port of Benin to have an embarked armed security team. Failing this, the vessel will automatically be provided with a security service by the Benin public security forces as soon as the vessel enters Benin territorial waters.

Please see below the recent circular they have issued together with its free translation.
