The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) has detained two Malaysia-flagged dredgers for anchoring without permission in the waters of Kuala Selangor, a town in the northwestern Selangor. 

Selangor MMEA director Maritime Captain V. Siva Kumar said the dredgers, MV Inai Terasek and MV Inai Kenanga were detained at around 11am on Monday (27 June).

“An operation was conducted with two members of the Port Klang Marine Department to perform an inspection of the dredgers anchored near Pantai Acheh,” he stated.

“The PERKASA 36 boat was deployed to the location to detain MV Inai Terasek and MV Inai Kenanga.”

He noted both vessels were found anchored without permission from the Malaysia Marine Department director-general, approximately 0.5 nautical miles east of Pantai Acheh. 

“During the inspection, it was found that the MV Inai Terasek was operated by two Malaysians and four Indonesians while MV Inai Kenanga’s crew consisted of 13 locals, four Indonesians, a Myanmar national and a Filipino national,” he said. 

The vessels, captains and crew of the two dredgers were taken to MMEA Selangor state headquarters investigations.
