The Singapore Police Force has arrested a 25-year-old man over suspected involvement in the illegal sale of marine fuel oil on board a Singapore registered tanker at the sea off Tanah Merah on 19 January 2018, it says.
To date, a total of 22 individuals were arrested in the 19 January 2018 case.
The Singapore police established the identity of 25-year-old man and arrested him with the assistance of the Royal Malaysia Police, on 15 March 2018 after further investigations.
He has been charged in court with an offence of Criminal Breach of Trust on 17 March 2018.
“I would like to thank the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP) for their swift efforts in locating and arresting the suspect,” says Senior Assistant Commissioner of Police (SAC) Hsu Sin Yun, Commander of the Police Coast Guard.
“The arrest would not have been possible without the close collaboration and strong relationship between the SPF and RMP.
“The SPF will spare no efforts to hunt down criminals who commit crimes in Singapore. We will work with our foreign law enforcement partners to bring these criminals to justice.”
The above case is separate from another ongoing hearing at the republic, involving the theft of MGO from a Shell terminal at Pulau Bukom.
