The Johor state division of Malaysia Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) on Wednesday (11 March) said crew of the two Mongolian-flagged oil tankers that were detained in February have been fined by the Johor court.
Skippers of the vessels pleaded guilty and were fined MYR 20,000 (USD 4,708) by Judge Zahilah Binti Mohammad Yusoff at the Kota Tinggi Courthouse, it said.
The two vessels were detained by the MMEA on 11 February when they were discovered to have committed multiple offences about 3.5 nautical miles south of Tanjung Penyusop.
The suspects were found guilty of violating section 361 (6) of the Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1952, having failed to produce the appropriate insurance documentation during the inspections.
Judge Zahilah also sentenced them to four months of imprisonment should they be unable to settle the fines within the stipulated time frame.
Both vessels will be released when the fine has been paid.
