quito - Twenty crew members of a Chinese ship have been convicted in Ecuador for years of cell punishment. The authorities previously caught the Chinese in the Galapagos Islands with about 300 tonnes of extinct extinct or endangered species on board, including about 6600 sharks.
The crew members of the Fu Yuan Yu Leng 999 enter the cell between one and four years, said the judge Sunday evening. Also, the Chinese were fined for $ 5.9 million (almost 5 million) fines for their involvement in illegal fishing practices.
The Ecuadorian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has filed an official complaint with Beijing about the presence of such ships at the archipelago. The Chinese ambassador to Quito would have indicated that his country wants to do everything in its power to stop these 'prohibited practices'. '
