18 Jul 2022

The Vietnam Coast Guard on Sunday (17 July) said it arrested a fishing boat with the number TG 93798 TS at about 45 nautical miles southeast of Con Dao province during a patrol at 9.10pm. 

A patrol boat belonging to the Coast Guard Region 3 Command on 15 July 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 five crew members on board, to be transporting  about 90,000 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 the port of Squadron 301 in Vung Tau city for further investigations and handling in accordance with the law.

Manifold Times in June reported that the same vessel was seized transporting more than 70,000 litres of diesel oil with no documents proving its legal origin.
