Jamil Murni, 60, of Houston, Texas, has been arrested on an indictment charging him with nine counts of wire fraud and one count of money laundering. He will appear in federal court in Texas before facing charges in Miami. 

According to the indictment, Murni was a Commodity Manager for Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd. In that position, he was responsible for negotiating fuel prices and deliveries for Royal Caribbean. From late 2003 through late 2006, he allegedly devised a scheme to defraud Royal Caribbean of over $600,000. 

According to court documents, in 2003, Murni registered “Sea Fuels Trading” as a fictitious name with the Florida Department of State’s Division of Corporations. He then opened and maintained a bank account in the name of Sea Fuels Trading. On December 19, 2003, Murni applied to have Sea Fuels Trading become a fuel provider for Royal Caribbean. In that application, he fraudulently concealed his ownership of the company. Royal Caribbean subsequently approved Sea Fuels Trading as a fuel vendor and paid Murni’s company money at a rate greater than would have been paid to a legitimate fuel vendor.  Why this was not picked up by anyone else at Royal  Caribbean remains unclear.
