The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and Police Coast Guard (PCG) reportedly held a joint operation on Sunday over an alleged illegal marine gas oil (MGO) transaction at waters off northern Tuas.
It resulted in the arrest of three suspects, all crew members of a foreign-registered workboat, aged between 22 and 30 years old; the vessel and SGD $3,501 (approximately USD $2,590) in cash have been seized for investigations.
The three suspects are scheduled to be charged at a Singapore court on Tuesday and face either a jail sentence for up to five years or fine, or both, if convicted for dishonestly receiving stolen property.
“The PCG and the MPA take a serious view of illegal transaction of marine fuel in Singapore waters,” said the police.
“The PCG will continue to conduct enforcement and security checks to prevent, deter and detect such illicit activities in Singapore waters.”
