Iran-linked tanker departs Croatia after four weeks
…The Panama-flagged Arc 1 (IMO: 9268112) attracted media attention in early May when US lobby group United Against Nuclear Iran alerted Croatian authorities of the pending arrival of the vessel and suspected provenance of the cargo of about 80,000 tonnes of crude. UANI’s representation included satellite images of the tanker receiving Iranian crude via a ship-to-ship transfer off Malaysian waters on April 2. The tanker briefly diverted to Italy upon arrival in the Adriatic Sea, where it refuelled before sailing back to Croatia around May 20. It had remained at anchor ever since.
