A total of 22 individuals, consisting of 20 Indonesians and two Singaporeans, on Thursday pleaded guilty at a Singapore court over their involvement in an illegal transaction of marine gas oil (MGO) from Singapore-registered bunkering vessel Brightoil 326.
Specifically, the group were involved over an illegal transaction of 45 metric tonnes (mt) of MGO from Brightoil 326 on February 5.
The 20 Indonesians, which included ex-employees of Singapore bunker supplier Brightoil Petroleum Sapidi and Robby Lirpa Sugiharto, are all still in remand.
Both Singaporeans Lim Kim Hock and Teo Chai Heng are out on bail.
All 22 men were each charged with one count of criminal breach of trust as a servant during the Thursday session.
The men will appear in court next on 22 March.
The above case is separate from another ongoing hearing at the republic, involving the theft of MGO from a Shell terminal at Pulau Bukom.
