According to a report from Bernama.com, three pirates aborted their attempt to rob a Singapore-registered tanker anchored off Tanjong Ramunia, Johor early August 15 after they saw the ship's crew was ready for them. The Regional Cooperation Agreement on Combating Piracy and Armed Robbery against Ships in Asia Information Sharing Centre (ReCAAP ISC) said pirates climbed onboard the tanker Kirana Tritya, then departed after the general alarm was raised.
