BRITISH TRAWLERS IN ICELANDIC WATERS

Resisting The Authorities

Frederikshavn, January 20th The trial concluded here today of the captain and a portion of the crew of the Hull trawler Royalist. On October 9th last the Sheriff of Isafjord Iceland, and five men rowed out to the Royalist to arrest her for fishing in Icelandic Territorial waters, but the crew refused to allow him to board her. After several inaffectual attempts to do so the boat dropped astern, and the occupants seized hold of the steel hawser, by which the trawl was towed. The Steamer went slowly ahead , and finally the hawser caught the boat in such a manner as to capsize her. Three of the Icelanders were drowned. The court today pronounced the following sentences: The Captain C A Nielsson, was condemed to one year`s imprisonment for offences against the laws of Denmark and Iceland; the mate Holmgren to 10 days hard labour; and the cook, Ruggard, a Dane, to 30 days hard labour. In addition the captain was fined 3,200 Kroner for illegal fishing in Icelandic and Danish waters. Reuter
