The Johor state division of Malaysia Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) on Monday (7 September) said it detained a Malabo-flagged tanker in Tanjung Piai, Pontian for anchoring without permit.
The vessel registered in the Republic of Equatorial Guinea was discovered at about 11.44 am, 4.1 nautical miles southeast of Tanjung Piai.
“The vessel was carrying about 80 metric tonnes of Marine Diesel Oil and during routine inspections, the Captain could not produce any permit that would allow him to anchor in Malaysian waters,” said First Maritime Admiral Nurul Hizam bin Zakaria, Director of Johor Maritime.
Initial investigations revealed that the tanker had five crew and a captain onboard who were all Indonesian nationals aged 24 to 56 years old.
The case will be investigated under Section 491B(1)(L) of the Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1952 for the offence, and if found guilty, carries a maximum jail term of two years and or a maximum fine of RM 100,000 (USD 23,823), said the MMEA.
