Indonesia accused over oil tanker carrying ‘stolen’ Cambodian oil

Manager and owner claim ship's crew interrogated as part of coercion campaign.

Indonesia has been accused of violating the human rights of an oil tanker crew in an escalating international dispute over a $21 million cargo of crude that Cambodia says has been stolen.

The Bahamas-flagged tanker Strovolos, estimated to be carrying nearly 300,000 barrels of crude from Cambodia’s ill-fated first oil venture, was seized by Indonesia’s navy off the country’s coast in July.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen and other officials claimed it had absconded with crude from the country’s Apsara oil field, after the Singapore-traded operator KrisEnergy went bankrupt after just six months of operation.
