Department of Special Investigation (DSI) officers have seized 15,000 litres of illegally imported petrol in an oil tanker in the Klong Toey Port area in Bangkok.
DSI chief Tarit Pengdit said the raid was in line with government policy. He added that smuggling oil is a criminal offence that has a severe impact on the country's economy and security.
The pattern of the illegal oil trade is complex so it requires the DSI to investigate it and collect evidence, he said.
