Barstad is right — but how does shipping sink the phantom fleet?


…The Danish company only found out about the scam when it was contacted by US pressure group United Against Nuclear Iran, which tracks ships using satellites, but believes fraudulent trade is widespread. Barstad argues that Frontline has repeatedly raised this issue of the ghost fleet with relevant flag states and shipowner organisation Intertanko. The International Maritime Organization says its legal committee would consider any new information provided by Intertanko.
