JOHOR BARU: Quick action by a Liberian- registered shipmaster managed to save not only US$23mil (RM95mil) worth of oil from being looted but also the lives of his 25 crewmen after pirates boarded his oil tanker.

The Ukrainian shipmaster, in his early 50s, spotted two pirates making their way into the tanker’s main engine room while another four were on the main deck very early yesterday morning.
