Vietnam: “Thanh Chau 68” detained over 500,000L of unknown origin diesel

08 Oct 2019

The Vietnam Coast Guard on Monday (7 October) said it has detained Thanh Chau 68, number BV2269, over the transportation of 500,000 litres of diesel oil of unknown origin.

The vessel was found at 2330 hrs (Vietnam time) on 4 October, about 9 nautical miles Southeast from Nghinh Phong cape (Vung Tau).

A check on board found the Captain unable to produce invoices and documents proving the legality of the oil cargo.

As such, the coast guard made a record of the ship's violation and escorted Thanh Chau 68 to a nearby port for further inspections.
