The Vietnam Coast Guard on Saturday (19 February) seized a wooden-hulled ship, KG 30107TS, carrying 27,000 litres of diesel oil for further investigation at the Vung Tau port, it said.

According to the authority, the ship was spotted about 35 nautical miles southwest of Hon Ong Island in the Kien Giang province when they discovered the vessel behaving suspiciously.

This led to it being stopped for an inspection at 04:00 hrs. 

The Vietnam Coast Guard said the three crew members on board could not produce invoices and documents proving the legal origin of the oil on board.

Malaysia: MMEA detains modified fishing boat suspected of smuggling diesel oil

The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) on Monday (19 February) said it detained a fishing vessel and three local men who were onboard after they allegedly tried to smuggle 6,000 litres of diesel worth MYR 13,000 (USD 2,712) on 18 February. 

In the 11pm incident, the men, aged 32 to 40, onboard the ship were found with the diesel at 0.6 nautical miles north of Pulau Langgun, Langkawi. 

“During the inspection of the boat in question, officers found there was an additional space on the deck and covered with plywood in the intention of hiding it from authorities,” said MMEA.

“As a result of that discovery, the suspects are suspected to be involved in smuggling subsidised oil estimated to be 6,000 litres, worth almost MYR 13,000.”

MMEA detained the fishing vessel and men before they were brought to Bukit Malut Maritime Jetty for further investigations.
