Iranian fuel oil unknowingly loaded by Euronav storage tanker in March was seized by US

Unsealed court documents show the US seized the 500,000 barrels originally loaded by Vietnamese tanker Abyss

Along with two criminal indictments against a sanction-busting network funding the IRGC, the US has unsealed documents showing it seized a cargo of Iranian fuel oil originally loaded by Vietnamese tanker Abyss. A Euronav storage tanker took on the oil in March, unaware of its origins. The newly disclosed seizure preceded two attempted hijackings of US-affiliated tankers in the Strait of Hormuz by Iran’s Navy in July
