TIỀN GIANG — Tiền Giang Border Guards on Wednesday said they have seized a tug boat and a barge for transporting around 8,000 tonnes of coal dust without any required documents.
The tug boat, Falcon 17, and barge, Tân Cảng No 3, belong to Falcon Transport Co Ltd, based in HCM City’s District 4.
On Tuesday, the border guards had found the tug boat and the barge ferrying coal dust from Hoàng Tấn Port in the southern province of Long An’s Bến Lức District to Duyên Hải Thermoelectricity Plant in the southern province of Trà Vinh. However, the captain Vũ Ngọc Thành, 42, did not have any papers to prove that the goods were legal.
None of the seven crew members of the tug boat and the barge had any professional certifications either. — VNS
