Op-Ed - Protecting the Indian Ocean: Seychelles leads and the UK is with you all the way

04-July-2017
The opening of the Regional Co-ordination and Operations Centre (RCOC) on Saturday was a momentous event for Seychelles and the region. It represents, as was so rightly said during the opening ceremony, a step forward in regional ownership of the fight, not just against piracy, but against all forms of maritime transnational organised crime. Trafficking in people, in arms and, as Seychelles knows too well, drugs, threaten to cause misery, poverty and disruption throughout the western Indian Ocean region, if left unchecked.
Seychelles has shown bold leadership in tackling this threat and the United Kingdom has been steadfast in support. The Royal Navy has been a central component of the naval shield provided by European Union and NATO forces; the UK has houses and operated the operational HQ of EUNAVFOR, and Royal Navy staff are seconded to EUNAVFOR, including a Liaison Officer in Seychelles.
