Caught in the act
The two ships found next to each other illegally transferring fuel during the raid by the MMEA.
GEORGE TOWN: The captains of two foreign ships and their crew were arrested after the two vessels were found illegally transferring fuel off Muka Head near here.
The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) also seized the vessels when officers found one of them was in the midst of transferring 50,000 litres of diesel to the other.
The Mongolia-registered MT Victory Star was found next to Honduras-registered MT Moresby 9 at about 5.30pm on Tuesday 12 nautical miles northwest of Muka Head.
MMEA District Two enforcement chief Kapt Kamaruszaman Abu Hassan said the 25 crew members of the two ships were Indonesians and Thais.
He said the case was being investigated under Section 491b(1)(k) of the Merchant Shipping Ordinance.
