The Johor state division of Malaysia Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) on Monday (21 December) said it detained a tanker for anchoring illegally in eastern Johor waters on Sunday afternoon.

Tanjung Sedili Maritime Director, Captain Mohamad Sulhan bin Zainon said the St Kitts & Nevis registered vessel was discovered by the patrol team at 1.00 p.m. around 11.3 nautical miles southeast of Tanjung Penawar.

Initial investigations revealed a Captain and ten crew members from Myanmar, the Philippines and Bangladesh, aged between 24 to 55 years old.

“All parties involved will be investigated under Section 491B(1)(L) of the Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1952 for anchoring without a permit,” added Captain Mohamad Sulhan.

“If convicted, the owner of the vessel and the Captain could face a maximum fine of MYR 100,000 (USD 24,682) or a jail term of up to two years or both.”

The detention order for the vessel has been issued and two crew members have been brought to the Tanjung Sedili branch of the MMEA office for further investigations.

Captain Mohamad Sulhan 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 Johor waters.

In the 11pm incident, the men, aged 32 to 40, onboard the ship were found with the diesel at 0.6 nautical miles north of Pulau Langgun, Langkawi.
