Smuggled Iranian Oil Enroute To China Seized By The US

1.3k

The U.S. authorities seized nearly 1 million barrels of Iranian oil that were being illegally smuggled  to China earlier this year, reports have emerged.

The U.S. seized Greek-owned M/T Suez Rajan with court filings showing allegations from U.S. prosecutors that Iran falsified the vessel’s cargo records and obfuscated its location to avoid accurate tracking. The Greek shipper has already agreed to pay a $2.4 million fine.
