No I did NOT support the crocked Bunker Suppliers and/or Bunker Surveyors, but the Government and particularly MPA Singapore for trying everything in their power to improve the situation.
That there are still some that try and succeed in circumventing the efforts doesn't surprise me, as I have been involved in trying to stop this kind of rackets in other parts of S.E.Asia and know a thing or two about how it is done.
May I be so bold as to point out that "it take two to tango". Without the co-operation of the Chief Engineer at the receiving end when bunkering it is hard to succeed in this racket after MFM was intrioduced.
I know that the Chief Engineer is a busy man, but if he take the time to PERSONALLY inspect the bunkering barge for means of siphoning off fuel AFTER the MFM, before bunkering operation commence, it would be hard to cheat.
I also know that brown envelopes miraculously appearing under the blotter in his office sometimes is an incentive to NOT do so. (Not that I imply that YOU would ever have been doing so)
