The Vietnam Coast Guard on Sunday (21 July) morning detained vessel QN-0222 TS in waters bordering Quang Ninh and Hai Phong over suspected carriage of illegal diesel oil, it said.

An initial inspection of the ship found it carrying nearly 40,000 litres of oil without bills or documents proving the cargo’s legal origin.
