Cameroon flag registry in fresh links to Iran oil trading

Lloyd's List

The international flag registry of Cameroon is under renewed pressure to deal with tankers trading US-sanctioned crude after another ship loaded a cargo via ship-to-ship transfer in waters off Jask, Iran last week. The Cameroon-flagged very large crude carrier Roza (IMO: 9197909) received a cargo of Iranian oil from Tanzania-flagged Phoenix (IMO: 9181194)between November 6-9, the United Against Nuclear Iran said in a letter to the country’s registrar. The New York-based non-profit group cited satellite images of the two tankers alongside each other in that region and said that both ships were spoofing their vessel location so that Automatic Identification Signals did not show them in the vicinity.
