Shell MGO bunker heist: Former Intertek Surveyor sentenced to 18 months’ jail, ordered to pay $123,243 fine

30 Sep 2022

A former Surveyor employed by Intertek Testing Services Pte Ltd (Intertek) was sentenced to 18 months’ jail and ordered to pay a fine of $123,243.10 by a Judge at the State Courts of Singapore on Thursday (29 September) over his involvement in the Shell MGO bunker heist.

Muhammad Ali Bin Muhammad Nor was amongst 12 individuals charged at the State Courts on April 2022.

He corruptly received total gratification of USD 90,000 (SGD $123,243.10) from Juandi bin Pungot and Muzaffar Ali Khan bin Muhamad Akram; who both recruited him into the syndicate in August 2016.

Between 2016 and 2017, Muhammad Ali did not accurately report the amount of cargo loaded onto 15 vessels that Intertek was engaged to check. He also turned a blind eye to Juandi’s and Muzaffar’s misappropriation of gasoil at Shell Pulau Bukom.

As a result of his assistance in concealing the misappropriation of gasoil, 15 incidents of misappropriation of Shell gasoil worth a total USD 10,440,220.57 went undetected by Shell between 2016 to 2017.
