Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA)  intelligence has identified two to three masterminds who are believed to be involved in the hijacking of the MT Orkim Harmony tanker.

MMEA deputy director-general (operations) Rear Admiral Ahmad Puzi Ab Kahar said MMEA was collecting information on the kingpins, including their movement and citizenship.
