Prosecutors do not seek jail for fishing boat captain

Prosecutors are not seeking jail for a boat captain caught fishing illegally near Isla del Coco and with 27 shark fins on board.

The Poder Judicial said that prosecutors seek to have the man, identified by the last names of Obando García, restricted instead. They were to ask a judge to order the man not to leave the country, to stay ashore and to sign in with prosecutors twice a week. Obando is facing a charge of fishing in a prohibited area and possession of illegal marine products.
