Oil tankers detained off Malaysia after ‘unauthorised’ STS operation


"Campaign group United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) identified the two vessels and posted a satellite image of the ships side-by-side on Tuesday. The group said the transfer involved an Iranian cargo. 

Both ships have been identified among 353 tankers involved in the Iranian oil trade by UANI. 

Claire Jungman, who tracks tankers for the organisation, said: 'These transfers occur almost daily in these waters. More action and due diligence need to be taken by all the maritime players to curb Iran’s sanctions evasion and oil exports.'"
