Singapore: Nine arrested in alleged illegal MGO sale

19 Jun 2018

A total of nine suspects aged between 21 and 56 have been reportedly arrested by the Singapore Police Coast Guard on Monday due to an alleged illegal sale of marine gas oil (MGO) in waters off Selat Puah Anchorage.

Four crew from a Singapore-registered vessel are believed to have misappropriated 400 litres of MGO without their company's knowledge.

The group are believed to have sold the fuel to five crew from a foreign-registered tugboat.

The nine suspects are scheduled to be charged at a Singapore court on Tuesday. They may be jailed for up to 15 years and fined, if convicted.
