The Region 3 division of the Vietnam Coast Guard Command on Friday (14 May) discovered the fishing boat TG-91679-TS to be behaving suspiciously in the sea area about 55 nautical miles southeast of Con Dao at 6.15am (local time).

An inspection revealed the fishing boat to be transporting about 45,000 litres of diesel oil illegally.

“All of the above oil was purchased [from vessels] floating on the sea, then transported to sell to fishing boats,” said a statement.

As such, the Vietnam Coast Guard has made a record and escorted the violating ship to a nearby port to continue investigations, clarification and handling in accordance with the law.
