Two Brightoil Petroleum employees, the Master and bosun of Brightoil 326, on Wednesday were charged in a Singapore court along with nine others with criminal breach of trust over an illegal marine gas oil (MGO) transfer.
The duo, Sapidi and Robby Lirpa Sugiharto, conspired to sell about 45 metric tonnes (mt) of MGO to the nine-member crew of a tugboat on the early hours of 5 February, according to local media.
The nine men on the tugboat are Stenlly Kart Baule, Yun Beriel, Stendlee Ambat, Herslag, Anomarin Mangerongkoda, Kiki Sarki Lintongan, Jelli Daniel Lumantow, Emriko Sikape, and Franner Virty Einstein Sabaru.
Police Coast Guard was alerted of the activity on 19 January when a tip-off came regarding an illegal sale of 200 mt of MGO from an unknown foreign-registered vessel.
