Vietnam Coast Guard detains fishing vessel over 40,000 litres of diesel

14 Jun 2021

The Task Force of the Vietnam Coast Guard Region 4 Command conducted an inspection of the fishing vessel CM-99284-TS in the southwest sea area, about 23 nautical miles south of Phu Quoc island, on Friday (11 June).

Initial checks found the ship to be transporting about 40,000 litres of diesel oil, with the Captain not being able to present invoices and documents proving the origin of the oil.

As such, the authorities made a record of administrative violations and escorted the vehicle to the port of Squadron 401 in Phu Quoc (Kien Giang) for further investigation and handling in accordance with the law.
