Ng Hock Teck, the marketing and operations manager of a Singapore-based bunkering firm, was reportedly brought to a Singapore court on Thursday to face additional charges.
Ng was issued with an additional charge of conspiring to receive stolen property.
He worked with co-accused Tan Cheng Chuan to load 517.8 metric tonnes (mt) of stolen fuel worth SGD $385,424 ($295,000) on 5 November 2017 from Shell Pulau Bukom onto Singapore-registered bunker tanker Sentek 26.
A Sentek Marine & Trading internal memo has indicated Ng and Tan being terminated by the firm on 13 January, 2018; the company has clarified it is not involved in Ng’s and Tan’s illegal dealings.
Tan, meanwhile, has been out on a SGD $30,000 bail while Ng is currently detained by police for further investigations; Tan will return to court on 20 February, while Ng will reappear in court next Tuesday 30 January.
The latest incident indicates the total amount of bunker fuel stolen from Shell Pulau Bukom breaking the SGD $6 million mark.
