The authority tracked down the ship on 27 February, and brought the vessel to the port of Sihanoukville for further proceedings on 1 March.
The MT Courageous, a 3,912 dwt vessel operated by a crew of 16, was ordered to leave Taiwan’s Kao Hsiuing port on 15 February.
The vessel was also allegedly involved in ship-to-ship transfers with North Korean vessels, according to the report.
The case has been sent to the prosecutor of the Preah Sihanouk Provincial Court in Cambodia for further proceedings and legal action.
