The letters were sent by United Against Nuclear Iran, a US-based group advocating against the nuclearisation of Iran and working on various fronts to prevent it. A spokesman for Janaf, the Croatian entity responsible for managing the storage and transportation of oil, later told Lloyd’s List that it had “not received the nomination of the vessel in subject from any of our clients.”
