Operation starts to reload confiscated oil onto Iranian tanker in Greece
…Data from US lobby group United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) showed the vessels within 11 metres of each other on August 11. UANI also obtained a warning issued by the Greek Ministry of Shipping on August 10 banning anchorage or movement of vessels within a radius of 0.1 nautical miles from Lana and Ice Energy as the STS takes place. It warned that violators would be punished. The sanctioned oil was seized by US authorities in May off the Greek island of Evia, but ordered to be returned by Greek courts after months of diplomatic wrangling.
