Pasukan Polis Marin Wilayah 5, known as Marine Police Force Region 5 (PPM W5), on Sunday (8 March) seized a cargo vessel carrying 20,000 litres of diesel without proper documentation at Sungai Batang Kemena, according to Malaysia national news agency Bernama.
In an official statement, commander of PPM W5, assistant commissioner Shamsol Kasim said the vessel was detained with three Indonesian crew, aged between 32 to 53, at 6 pm.
“Upon further investigations, the skipper of the cargo vessel failed to produce any valid documents in relation to the origins and ownership of the fuel – an offence under the Control of Supplies Act 1961,” he explained.
“The vessel, crew, diesel cargo, all fuel pumping equipment have been detained by members of my team.”
“The cargo is estimated to be worth MYR 1,545,100 (USD 37,000) and the case has been referred to the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) for further action,” concludes Kasim.
