NK News on 4th December reported that the 10,000 tonne, formerly Panamanian-flagged, Hua Fu was sanctioned by the UN in March for its role exporting DPRK coal from North Korea to Vietnam numerous times in 2017.  The ship’s owner – Chang An Shipping and Technology – was also designated as the registered owner, ship manager, and commercial manager.  The ship delivered coal to Cam Pha, and then again loaded coal in the DPRK and attempted to deliver it to Cam Pha, claiming its origin as Nakhodka, despite not having visited any Russian ports for over a year.
