OIL TANKERS STRIPPED OF ST KITTS & NEVIS FLAG AFTER BREACHING US SANCTIONS TO SECRETLY SHIP IRANIAN OIL

On 26 August, Hellenic Shipping News reported that the 4 ships – the Giessel, the Ekaterina, the Lerax, and the Amfitriti – all made covert visits to Iranian waters this year where they collectively picked up millions of barrels of oil.  They were sailing under the flag of the Caribbean island state of St. Kitts & Nevis and the St. Kitts & Nevis Ship Registry has decided it would no longer allow the tankers to fly under its flag.
