MMEA Singapore flagged

The Selangor state division of Malaysia Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) on Saturday (30 January) said it detained a Singapore flagged tanker for allegedly anchoring without a permit and conducting illegal oil transfers on Friday, 29 January.

“The vessel was discovered 1.2 nautical miles northeast of Carey Island at 11.45 am in a joint operation with the Central Region Marine Department,” said Maritime Captain Mohamad Rosli bin Kassim, Diretor, MMEA Selangor.

“As soon as we received the tip off from the Marine Department, our team rushed to the scene and initial investigations revealed that the vessel could have anchored without a permit from the Marine Department.”

MMEA discovered the vessel is a Singapore registered tanker on its journey from Tanjung Pelepas, Johor to Port Klang and is suspected of illegal oil transfers.

Maritime Captain Rosli noted there were 15 crew onboard, all of whom were Indonesian nationals aged between 20 to 64 years old holding proper identification documents. 

The Captain, Assistant Engineer and vessel Agent were detained under the Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1952 and were brought to the Selangor State Maritime Headquarters for further investigations. 

Maritime Captain Rosli reminded all shipowners any activity in Malaysian waters requires the appropriate permits to be issued by the authorities in order to avoid legal action being taken and that the MMEA is being vigilant to safeguard security in Malaysian waters.

A foreign shipping company has been fined NOK 1 million (USD 94,632) for having sailed one of its ships with heavy fuel oil on board within the territorial waters around Svalbard, which is a breach of the Svalbard Environment Act, according to the Governor of Svalbard on Thursday (13 June). 

In addition, the captain has been fined NOK 30,000.

On 6 June 2024, the cargo ship passed into Svalbard's territorial waters, despite the vessel having heavy fuel oil on board, which was established by an inspection carried out by inspectors from the Norwegian Maritime Directorate on the same day.

“This is a breach of Section 82a of the Svalbard Environment Act, which stipulates that ships calling at Svalbard cannot use or have heavy fuel oil as a means of transport. The provision applies to the whole of Svalbard and was introduced on 1 January 2022,” Lars Fause said. 

For the violation of Section 82a of the Svalbard Environment Act, the Governor of Svalbard has issued a forfeiture order against the foreign shipping company of NOK 1,000,000. In addition, the captain of the ship has been fined NOK 30,000.

“It is the first time that the Governor has fined a company in connection with a breach of the heavy oil provision on Svalbard,” he added. 

The fines have not been accepted. The shipping company provided a guarantee for the sum of the fine and was thus allowed to sail down from Svalbard on Wednesday evening, 12 June.

The main hearing in the case is scheduled for the Nord-Troms district court in early October.
