An Iranian oil tanker, surrounded by diplomatic disputes, has been released from Gibraltar on Sunday evening. Gibraltar left the ship, rejecting the US request to keep the vehicle under control. The ship was taken under control on the Strait of Gibraltar on July 7. Regulatory website ‘Marine Traffic’ reports that Iran’s huge tanker was released at 9 pm GMT time. But the ship’s destination has not yet been opened. The oil tanker, formerly known as Grace 1, is now named ‘Adrian Darya’. The ship contains at least US $ 500 million worth of crude oil. It is reported that international maritime laws have been followed for its renaming and re-flagging. Gibraltar’s highest court on Thursday ordered the tanker to be released. According to the Gibraltar government, Iran had written off the vehicle after making a commitment to not take the vehicle to a country where European Union sanctions were imposed. Gibraltar eventually abandons.
The vehicle was taken over by the British Royal Navy in July. The move was made on suspicion that the ship’s oil was being transported to Syria. The European Union has banned trade with Syria. A US court on Friday issued a warrant to capture the tanker while Gibraltar was preparing to release an oil tanker. He made the decision, saying the ship belonged to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. The US has placed the Islamic Revolutionary Guard of Iran’s statutory military group Islamic Revolutionary Guard in the list of terrorist organizations. It is the first time that the United States has declared a military organization of any country a terrorist organization. The Gibraltar government said it could not accept the US request because of European law. Relations between Iran and Britain have deteriorated after Gibraltar, under British occupation, seized an Iranian oil tanker ship. In return, Tehran occupied the flag of Britain in the ‘Strait of Hormuz’. The ship ‘Stena Impero’ is still in Iranian occupation. Gibraltar eventually abandons.
