The Vietnam Coast Guard on Wednesday (24 February) said the patrol team of the Marine Police Zone Command has detained vessel HP-1702 for transporting 20,000 litres of undocumented diesel oil.

The patrol team was out on its inspection rounds on Tuesday, 23 February at 6.15 pm when they discovered the vessel behaving suspiciously at the coastal area at Hai Bong, Hai Phong.

Initial investigations revealed the vessel is allegedly owned by Hong Minh Petroleum Co with two crew members onboard, and the Master was unable to present the necessary invoices proving the legality of the diesel oil.

Marine Police Zone Command has detained the vessel and escorted it to Hai Phong wharf in order for the case to be dealt with in accordance with Vietnamese law.
