US SEEKS SEIZURE OF ALL IRANIAN GASOIL ABOARD 4 TANKERS HEADED TO VENEZUELA BASED ON CONNECTION TO IRGC

A news release from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement on 6 July advised that a forfeiture complaint and warrant filed in Washington DC alleges that all petroleum-product cargo aboard 4 ships – Bella (IMO number 9208124), Bering (IMO number 9149225), Pandi (IMO number 9105073), and Luna (IMO number 9208100) – are subject to forfeiture based on the terrorism forfeiture statute. Documents allege a scheme involving multiple parties affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to covertly ship Iranian gasoil, obtained via ship-to-ship transfers, to Venezuela. A judge issued a warrant to seize all Iranian gasoline on these 4 vessels, based on a probable cause showing of forfeitability.
