SWISS TRADER USED MALTA PETROLEUM TANKS TO TAKE LIBYAN OIL FROM SHIPS

On 2 March, Malta Today reported on an investigation which claims to have found that a Swiss company was accepting smuggled fuel from Libya inside tanks leased from government-owned Enemed in Malta between 2014 and 2015, to resell the oil at sea and the European market.  The network was run by a Libyan smuggler and 2 Maltese nationals until broken up by Italian police.  The oil was cleared by the Malta Customs with fraudulent certification, despite numerous protests of Libyan leaders about fuel being smuggled into Malta.  The oil was later blended out at sea so that it could be resold onto the European market.
