The Vietnam Coast Guard on Monday (18 January) said the patrol team of the Marine Police Zone Command Region 1 has detained a tanker with no serial number for transporting 45,000 litres of undocumented diesel oil.
The patrol team said it was out on its inspection rounds on Friday (29 January) at 4.15 pm when they discovered the vessel behaving suspiciously at the coastal area bordering Hai Phong – Quang Ninh.
Initial investigations revealed 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 Region 1 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.
