In the United States issued an arrest warrant for the Iranian tanker Grace 1

62
A court in the United States issued an arrest warrant for the Iranian tanker Grace 1, detained by the Royal Marine Corps in Gibraltar and released the other day. This is stated in a document published on the website of the United States Department of Justice.




The Iranian oil tanker Grace 1, which has on board oil in the amount of 2 million barrels, as well as 995 000 dollars, are to be confiscated on the basis of a complaint from the US government, said Columbia District Attorney Jesse Liu in a press release posted on the US Department of Justice official communications portal .

In a statement, Washington cites a violation by the Iranian side of the American Law on International Extraordinary Economic Powers (IEEPA), the Bank Fraud Act and the Money Laundering Act, as well as the law on confiscation for activities related to terrorism.

On July 4, the tanker was captured by the British Royal Marines in the western Mediterranean on suspicion of violating EU sanctions. His team was suspected of delivering oil to Syria.

The tanker was sent to Gibraltar and stayed there until Thursday, when by decision of the court he was released. According to published data, the ship's captain signed a guarantee that the oil on his ship would not be delivered to Syria.

In turn, the press expressed the opinion that the release of Grace 1 was connected with a secret ship exchange deal: on July 19, Iran detained a British tanker along with the crew and, according to diplomatic sources, was ready to release it only after Grace 1 released.

The charge is terrorism


Washington tried to detain the Iranian tanker on the grounds that it is associated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps in Iran (IRGC), which is recognized by the United States as a terrorist organization.

The scheme involves several parties associated with the IRGC. A network of shell companies allegedly laundered millions of dollars during such shipments.

- the prosecutor reported.

As mentioned earlier, Gibraltar overturned the order to detain the tanker on Thursday, but the ship’s fate was complicated by Washington’s demand to detain the ship, which appeared shortly before the trial for his release. Despite the fact that the arrest was removed from the ship, it is still anchored off the coast of Gibraltar, and it is still unclear whether it is ready to sail in the near future.

    Here's how to act against the Americans. They only understand strength. And so many citizens were stolen from us, state property was taken away .. and only Zakharova on Twitter is indignant .. politicians have been crushed here .. they are afraid .. for property acquired by back-breaking labor, but sent to the camp of the "enemy" ..

        That's right, to our "home". To convoy to Novorossiysk, there, at the terminal, to pump out all the oil from it and give the empty trough back to Iran with the words: "Come again, we will be glad." lol

          Washington refers to a violation by the Iranian side of the American Law on International Emergency Economic Powers (IEEPA), the Bank Fraud Act and the Money Laundering Act, as well as the law on confiscation for activities related to terrorism.

          In fact, this is pure international raiding by the USA - i.e. unlawful forceful repression of foreign foreign property (Iran) by fraudulent gang methods on the part of the United States.

          This is nothing but the modern piracy of the United States in the most, no matter what, hypocritically impudent liberal-colonialist form!

              The situation with Washington’s arrest of an Iranian tanker (in a bit more detail) looks something like this.

              The United States ordered Britain to arrest the Iranian tanker. The Britons, taking the visor, arrested the Iranian tanker on a far-fetched pretext.
              In response, the Iranians arrested an English tanker, demonstrating to the British that they did not intend to joke. What led London into complete confusion. After all, if this goes on, it will be difficult for the British to conduct their vital business in the Mediterranean.
              - Do not be afraid! - said the Americans to Britam. - We will create a "US Marine Coalition" in the Mediterranean!
              However, Germany refused this abstraction - she said that she had nothing to do in the Mediterranean. What, they say, she forgot there? With other countries, the United States with the marine coalition also does not seem to have grown together.
              As a result, Britain cried out in front of the United States: am I the most "redhead" of all countries? I have urgent trade interests in the Mediterranean! Where is the USA - and where is Britain and the Mediterranean ?! The United States declared that, they say, howling a shirt to the British is also closer to the body!

              It was then that Washington made a knight's move - he turned his further swindle, untiing the hands of London and absolving him of the guilt before Iran. But at the same time, the United States was forced to throw off and cast off the mask of world "peacekeepers" and laid bare its own - truly colonial - essence. Namely.

              1. Britain released the Iranian sailors and the Iranian tanker itself.
              2. In response, Iran freed a British tanker.
              3. After this exchange of tankers, the United States immediately arrested an Iranian tanker.
              4. If the Iranians managed to release the English tanker, then the insidious raider-pirate deception on the part of the USA / Britain against the Iranians took place!

      and a citizen, ship, plane ... ANY country can be arrested,

      Hmm ?! Decisions of the US Democrats? only now they are opposed by the Republicans who cancel the execution of such "decisions".
      On the other hand, the status of a tanker is still not known. For example, it is private or public. Yes, and state ownership is not known. There is ONLY a collision with Iran from the United States (represented by Democrats). But the US president is a Republican ...
      By the way, not even the brand of oil is known, i.e. her appointment.

    Legally, it’s difficult to dig into US actions, the UN took sanctions.

    No, the UN did not accept these sanctions. These are purely US and EU troubles.
