The Vietnam Coast Guard on Thursday (11 April) said it temporarily seized a vessel TG 92377 – TS in the country’s southwest region to investigate an alleged illegal diesel oil (DO) cargo.
“At the time of inspection, the Captain declared a vessel carrying about 100,000 litres of DO oil but there were not enough invoices and documents proving the legal origin of the oil quantity,” it said in a statement.
The four crew members on board had no identification, professional qualifications or certificates.
Following, the coast guard made a record of administrative violations, issued a decision to temporarily seize material evidences, and escorted the vessel to Navy Port 402 (Nam Can) to continue investigation and clarification in accordance with the law.
