Hellenic Shipping News on 6th August reported on a case before the High Court in Singapore in which Hanover-based Norddeutsche Landesbank-Girozentrale (NordLB) is seeking the arrest of vessels, accusing their China-based owner of defaulting on a $30 million mortgage agreement. Lloyd’s List had reported that 2 of the ships appeared to have transported Iranian liquefied petroleum gas in breach of US sanctions. The tankers, together with a third ship, had been used as collateral for a $30 million loan NordLB made in July 2018 to 3 Chinese-based companies. The 2 tankers were detained in Singapore in July but subsequently released.
