08 Mar 2022

The Vietnam Coast Guard on Sunday (6 March) said it has seized a fishing vessel transporting about 60,000 litters of unknown origin diesel oil.

The task group of Squadron 42/BTL Coast Guard Region 4 discovered a fishing vessel bearing the number BL 93903 TS during a patrol at the sea about 100 nautical miles from South Hon Khoai, Ca Mau province on Friday 8 pm.

The vessel displayed numerous suspicious signs, promoting the coast guard to board the vessel for inspection.

An initial investigation found the ship to be transporting about 60,000 litres of diesel oil which had no invoices and documents to prove its legal origin.

As such, the coast guard made records of administrative violations and guided the fishing vessel to a nearby naval base in Nam Can district, Ca Mau province for further investigation and handling in accordance with the law.
