A total of 15 suspects between 25 and 60 years old were reportedly arrested by the Police Coast Guard, the Marine Police division of the Singapore Police Force, on Friday (4 May) for an alleged illegal transaction of marine gas oil (MGO) off Sultan Shoal lighthouse in Singapore.
The activity involved a foreign-registered tugboat and a Singapore-registered vessel.
"Preliminary investigations revealed that eight crew members of the Singapore registered vessel are believed to have misappropriated 1,000 litres of MGO without their company’s knowledge," said a statement from the police.
Seven members of the tugboat were believed to have bought the MGO.
On Saturday, nine of the suspects were charged at a Singapore court with criminal breach of trust. Investigations on the remaining six are ongoing.
