During a special operation against ship owners who anchored in undesignated and prohibited areas, 40 officers on MMEA's ship and five boats,  conducted operations in Pengerang, Malaysia waters.


Ships arrested included the Erwan Adventure tugboat, MT Krysper Singa and MT Titan Wisdon, which are registered in Singapore, Atami Maru (San Lorenzo) and MT Ruyi (Tarawa, Kiribati).
