Agensi Penguatkuasaan Maritim Malaysia, also known as Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA), on Wednesday (15 October) said it has detained a drillship over an alleged unauthorised anchoring incident 9 nautical miles east of Tanjung Balau.
Maritime Captain Mohd Zulfadli Bin Nayan, Director of Maritime Zone Tg. Sedili (ZMTS) said the Bahamas-registered vessel Sonangol Quenguela was detained at about 9 pm after a patrol found the ship to have failed to issue any permits to enter Malaysian waters.
The ship was manned by 43 crew from 28 to 67 years old from various States.
“The case will be investigated under the Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1952, Section 491B (1) (l) which is activity without the consent of the Director of Marine,” he said.
“If found guilty they could be fined up to RM100,000 or imprisonment not exceeding 2 years or both.”
