Three vessels arrested in Venezuela

Sept. 14, 2015 at 03:26 by Mikhail Voytenko in Maritime Security

Three vessels were arrested in Venezuela recently during last week for allegedly illegal fuel on board. Tanker Negra Hipolita is Venezuela-flagged, tanker Marios G is Greek, and no data found on the third vessel mt Paola Valentina, Panama-flagged, most probably because of misspelled name. Marios G was found to have 1000 barrels of illegal bunker on board, 4 tons were found on board of Paola Valentina. At least 9 crew arrested. Maybe it’s just another type of racket, and Venezuelan tanker was engaged in the plot as a disguise. President Maduro already expressed his satisfaction over arrest and accused evil forces in attempts to disrupt Venezuela’s economy.
