Man detained on suspicion smuggling out diesel
ALOR STAR: A businessman has been detained on suspicion of trying to smuggle 30,000 litres of diesel to Thailand.
A Thai-registered mini-tanker, laden with 330,000 litres of diesel, was also seized from the suspect, in his 40s, in the 5pm raid at the Malaysian Fisheries Development Board jetty here today.
Sources said preliminary checks showed the suspect only had a permit to sell 300,000 litres of diesel but he had exceeded the amount by 30,000 litres.
Meanwhile, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's Putrajaya assistant commissioner Mustafa Kamal Ahmad said seven Thai nationals, who were crew of the vessel, have also been detained for questioning.
He said the vessel was due to leave for Phuket in Thailand when his officers stopped it.
"We are still checking on a lot of things including the source of the fuel.
"We will interrogate the businessman and the Thai crew to solve the case," he said.
Mustafa Kamal said the case would be investigated under the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009 for forgery of documents to export diesel.
