EIGHTEEN people have been charged for illegal red tuna fishing in Estepona and 1,800 kilos of fish confiscated.

The Guardia Civil’s Seprona nature protection branch had become aware that boats were loading the forbidden catches onto vans in Estepona port and selling them in Cadiz, Malaga and Sevilla provinces.

During inspections one of the van drivers tried to escape and after a high-speed chase through the streets of the town was charged for dangerous driving and obstructing police inspections.
