The Pahang state division of Malaysia Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) on Sunday (21 June) said it has detained a Thai-flagged oil tanker 159 nautical miles from Kuala Kemaman, Terengganu at 12 noon on Thursday (18 June).
“We had already received an anonymous tip off that there were ships in Terengganu illegally selling bunker fuel to Vietnamese fishing boats that unlawfully enter Malaysian waters,” said Maritime Commander Rashidilhadi bin Abdul Rashid, MMEA Kemaman.
Initial investigations by the patrol team revealed there were ten crew on board, aged between 20 to 63. Five of the crew and the captain were Thai, and the rest were Cambodian nationals.
The Captain failed to produce the necessary insurance documents for the vessel and it has since been brought to the MMEA office in Kemaman for further questioning.
The case will be investigated under the Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1952, and if found guilty, carries a jail term of up to two years, or a maximum fine of MYR 100,000 (USD 23,390) or both, explained Rashidilhadi.
