As it appears from that report that Ice Prince's tanks are still intact, then it may well have come from some unscrupulous scrote washing his tanks at sea. Masters of ships that do that should be fined very heavily, imprisoned and have their master's certificate revoked.

Even more so should the companies who order their captains to do this when no one is looking because they are too tight fisted to pay for having the cleaning done properly in port.
