The Vietnam Coast Guard on Monday (4 January) said the patrol team of the Marine Police Zone Command Region 2 has detained vessel TG 90659 TS for transporting 140,000 litres of undocumented diesel oil.
Singapore bunker publication Manifold Times in April reported the same vessel was arrested for illegally carrying 50,000 litres of diesel oil.
The patrol team said it was out on its inspection rounds on Sunday (3 January) at 10.37 am when they discovered the vessel about 14 nautical miles from the northeast coast of Phú Quốc Island.
Initial investigations revealed the Master being unable to present the necessary invoices proving the legality of the diesel oil carried onboard.
The ship’s Master and four crew members also did not have the required qualifications to operate the vessel.
Due to adverse weather conditions, Marine Police Zone Command Region 2 detained the vessel with the help of Coast Guard Region 4 in order for the case to be dealt with in accordance with Vietnamese law.
