Vietnam Coast Guard detains domestic vessel over waste oil cargo

31 Oct 2019

The Vietnam Coast Guard on Monday (28 October) detained a domestic wooden hulled vessel BD 1013 over an undocumented cargo of waste oil at the coast of Quy Nhon, Binh Dinh Province, it said.

The vessel was carrying about a total 20 m3 of waste oil found in two cargo holds, according to two crew members interviewed by the coast guard.

An inspection by the authority found the ship to only possess a certificate of registration to operate as an inland watercraft; it was operating without the appropriate certificates and papers related to goods being transported onboard.

As such, coast guard officials made a record of administrative violations over "transporting goods without papers proving the legality of the goods" and issued a decision to temporarily seize material evidences and the vessel for further investigations.
