A Cypriot-flagged cargo vessel has been fined for anchoring illegally in Vietnam’s inland waters.

On Monday, border guard officers in Cua Dai Ward, Hoi An City, located in the central province of Quang Nam, confirmed that the Cypriot ship had been booked for the offense.

According to preliminary information, officers detected a foreign ship anchoring in a maritime area about four nautical miles southeast of the checkpoint for the Cua Dai Border Guard Office at 11:00 am on Saturday.

They decided to perform an administrative inspection as the vessel showed signs of violating Vietnam’s inland waters.

Results of the examination showed that the ship was registered in Cyprus and the captain was Zaremba Damia Marek, a 39-year-old Polish citizen.

The vessel has 21 crew members, including 12 Polish and nine Filipino nationals.

The ship’s captain failed to present a permit granted by Vietnamese authorities, which is required if a foreign ship wants to anchor in Vietnam's inland waters.

The violation was reported to authorities in Quang Nam Province later the same day, and a VND25 million (US$1,085) fine was imposed upon the vessel.
