Tony Saragih failed to perform as JV partner. He did not do anything when the crews were left without foods, water and proper provision. He also did not do anything when those crews had to sell or pawn the equipment to buy food and water. The US$ 185,000 claimed by Oelius Chrismen (it is the name of Tony Saragih's son, by the way) had been paid to MV Bien Nam was not true, since the ship was nearly abandoned with outstanding expenses amounting in excess of US$ 100,000 in Padang. He also nearly caused total loss of the ship when it ran aground in Padang port.

Fortunately for him, Capt. Hla Min had initiative to disclose the spectrum and magnitude of situation to ship owner so that they managed to secure the ship, paid outstanding expenses and solved all other problems. Otherwise, Tony Saragih would run into more problems. However, Tony Saragih went too far in his frowned upon business conducts by reporting Capt. Hla Min to Indonesian Police on 27.08.2012 for an alleged fraud, as the mentioned by referenced newspaper in Indonesian language.
