HAI PHONG (Biz Hub) — Sunrise 689, a Vietnamese vessel that went missing a few hours after it left Singapore for Viet Nam last Friday, is returning home.
The ship was carrying 18 crew members and more than 5,200 tonnes of oil.
The oil tanker, owned by the Hai Phong Sea Product Shipbuilding Joint Stock Company, is now in the territorial waters of the southern Ca Mau Province and is expected to reach land tomorrow.
Initial investigations showed that pirates had siphoned off all of the oil in the vessel and had injured two crew members, said Nguyen Vu Diep, head of the company's Ship Management Unit, this morning. —
