Apparently, if someone is caught fishing in our territorial waters, they are asked to stop but if instead of obeying they try to escape (and maybe even ram you) then you can resort to hard ways. This is what happened today 9 miles off the coast of the island of Lampedusa.
A fishing boat flying the Tunisian flag was caught fishing in Italian territorial waters by a patrol boat of the Guardia di Finanza, which ordered the boat to stop for the ritual checks. The Mohamed Anmed, this is the name of the Tunisian fishing boat, instead of obeying the order of the authorities he tried to flee to international waters, carrying out maneuvers that led him to ram the boat of the Fiamme Gialle.
The military set out in pursuit of the fishing boat firing numerous gunshots for intimidation to block its escape, subsequently the Yellow Flames managed to board it and get on board.
The captain was arrested and taken to Lampedusa where the Tunisian boat was impounded.
