Singapore bunker supplier Brightoil Petroleum (S’pore) Pte Ltd will be waiting for police investigations to finish before deciding on any action against the crew.
Two Brightoil Petroleum employees, the Master and bosun of Brightoil 326, on Wednesday were charged in a Singapore court along with nine others with criminal breach of trust over an alleged illegal marine gas oil (MGO) transfer.
“Brightoil Petroleum (S’pore) Pte Ltd (the “Company”) will not tolerate any illegal conducts of any employee, and will provide full assistance to the police for their investigation of this incident,” says a spokesperson.
“In respect of the two employees currently being investigated, the company will make its decision depending on the outcome of the judicial investigation.
“If they are convicted, the company will reserve its right of dismissal and right to claim for damages. The company would like to restate that the operation of the Company is in full compliance with the local laws and regulations.”
He stated the company is currently not in the position to comment further on the details of the incident as it is now being investigated by the police.
“We remain committed to our marine bunker business in Singapore, and to providing our customers with the best in class services.”
