The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) on Thursday (25 April) morning detained a tanker at about 3.5 nautical miles southeast of Tanjung Penyusup in Pengerang, Johor, it said in a statement.
The name of the tanker has been withheld.
“The detention was carried out after the inspection found that the tanker failed to furnish permission from the Marine Director of Malaysia and the document on Ship Insurance had expired,” noted Maritime Lieutenant Commander Muhammad Padzly bin Pasrial, Acting Deputy Director of Operations, Tanjung Sedili branch.
The case will be investigated under the Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1952 Section 491B (l) under unauthorized access and Section 361 (3) covering the expiration of ship insurance.
The arrest of the tanker was the seventh in the whole month of April, states MMEA.
