02 Jun 2022

The Vietnam Coast Guard on Tuesday (31 May) arrested a fishing boat with the number KG 94431 TS at the southwest sea about 3.5 miles of the northern overlapping area between Vietnam and Malaysia during a patrol.

A patrol boat belonging to the Coast Guard Region 4 Command discovered the fishing boat displaying several suspicious signs and ordered the vessel to stop for administrative inspections.

An initial investigation found the ship, which had four crew members on board, to be transporting about 40,000 litres of diesel oil with no documents proving its legal origin.

As such, the authorities made a record of administrative violations and escorted the vessel to port of Fleet 421 in Năm Căn town, Cà Mau province for further investigations and handling in accordance with the law.
