06 May 2022

The Vietnam Coast Guard on Friday (29 April) said it has seized a ship transporting about 70,000 litres of unknown origin diesel oil.

The task group of Coast Guard Region 3 Command discovered a vessel bearing the number TG 94456 TS during a patrol at the sea about 70 nautical miles southwest of Con Dao province on Thursday 5.15 pm.

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

An initial investigation found the ship to be transporting about 70,000 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 the port of Squadron 33 in Con Dao for further investigation and handling in accordance with the law.
