KUALA LUMPUR: A fuel-laden Malaysian tanker that went missing off the east coast of Johor last Thursday has been detected in Cambodian waters, with a new coat of paint and a new name, said Navy chief Admiral Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Jaafar.
The MT Orkim Harmony, carrying 6,000 tonnes of petrol valued at RM21mil, is being tailed from the air by Royal Malaysian Air Force, Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency and the Royal Australian Air Force aircraft, he said.
“We have found the vessel and RMAF, MMEA and RAAF aircraft are tailing it from the air,” he said.
Abdul Aziz said the tanker had been repainted and renamed. – Bernama
