Vietnam: Vessel with fake name illegally transporting diesel oil

30 May 2019

The Vietnam Coast Guard on Friday (24 May) caught a vessel using a fake name to illegally transport about 130,000 litres of diesel oil.

The TG 90389-TS vessel, which used fake number BV 90389-TS, was found about 125 nautical miles South from Hon Khoai island, Vietnam.

“At the time of inspection, the captain could not produce invoices and documents proving the legality of the above oil; the ship has no records and means of transport; Captain has no personal papers, no professional qualifications or certificates,” it said in a statement.

From the beginning of 2019 to date, the Zone 4 Marine Police Command of the Vietnam Coast Guard has handled four cases of illegal oil transportation in the country’s Southwest Sea, seizing about 580,000 litres of diesel oil.
