The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency(MMEA) has detained a fishing boat and a cargo ship on suspicions that the two vessels were involved in the illegal sale and transfer of subsidized diesel, Malaysian newspaper Daily Express reports. 
MMEA apprehended the boats last weekend after catching the two vessels together out on the water close to midnight."We have arrested the suspects for investigation under Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1952/60 and the Fishery Act 1985. The ship and boat were also seized," the source said.
Sources at MMEA said that the fishing boat had been suspected of misusing its diesel subsidy licence while the cargo ship seemed to be buying without a permit.Malaysian fishermen receive subsidies on bunker fuel, though cargo ships do not.
