A total of three individuals were reportedly charged at a Singapore court on Saturday (13 January, 2018) due to their involvement in the recent oil heist at Shell Bukom in Singapore.

Ng Hock Teck and Tan Cheng Chuan, both Singaporeans, were each charged for one count of criminal breach of trust, said local media.

The duo allegedly received about 300 metric tonnes (mt) of gas oil, worth about SGD $160,000 ($120,000) onboard the Sentek 26 bunkering tanker during a transfer operation on 11 November 2017.

The third individual Doan Xuan Than, a Vietnamese, was charged for allegedly receiving approximately 1,349 mt of gas oil, worth SGD $736,000, in an operation onboard the Panama-registered vessel MT Gaea on 31 December 2017.

A fuel syndicate suspected of stealing fuel from Singapore Shell Bukom has been uncovered in an operation conducted by the Criminal Investigation Department, Police Intelligence Department and Police Coast Guard on 8 January.
