SHAH ALAM: Three Myanmar nationals believed to be under the influence of drugs were detained by the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) while they were in their boat near the waters off Sekinchan, Selangor.
Selangor MMEA director Captain V. Siva Kumar said the fishing boat was detected by a MMEA patrol vessel 13 nautical miles (24km) southwest of Sekinchan.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the boat was being managed by a “tekong” and two Myanmar nationals aged between 33 and 41.
The foreigners were carrying out fishing activities for the past two days and all were found to be high on drugs, reported Bernama.
”We found two drinking straws and one clear plastic container filled with syabu weighing about 5g and a glass bong kept in the tekong’s cabin.
“All of them did not have any valid identification documents,”he said in a statement yesterday.
