The British High Commissioner to Sierra Leone Mr. Guy Warrington on Monday 8th May 2017, handed over the newly constructed Murray Town Jetty to the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces Maritime Wing.

 

Speaking at the opening ceremony Mr. Warrington said the Jetty will provide a safe berth for the nations maritime capacity and is vital to a coordinated response to the proper regulation of the maritime industry to combat variety of maritime threat ranging from illegal, unlicensed and unregulated fishing to smuggling and illegal migration.

 

Receiving the Jetty on behalf of the Government of Sierra Leone was the Deputy Minister of Defense Captain (retired) Abdul Kamara and the Chief of Defence Staff Lieutenant General John Milton, and was joined by other representatives from the security sector and the international community.

 

Murray Town has been at the centre of the country’s maritime development and is the home of both the Maritime Wing and the police Marine Division.

 

The handing over of the Jetty is the most recent example of the UKs ongoing maritime partnership, as in 2010 the UK.
