The Vietnam Coast Guard on Monday (26 September) arrested a fishing boat with the number TG 93698 TS at the southeastern sea of Hon Khoai about 130 nautical miles of Ca Mau Province during a patrol.
A patrol boat belonging to the Coast Guard Region 4 Command discovered a fishing boat displaying several suspicious signs and ordered the fishing vessel to stop for administrative inspections.
An initial investigation found the ship, which had five members on board, to be transporting about 80,000 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 Squadron 421 in Nam Can district, Ca Mau province for further investigations and handling in accordance with the law.
