Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman says the Islamic Republic will free seven crew members from the British-flagged tanker Stena Impero, detained in July in the Strait of Hormuz.
Iran’s Judiciary says the prison terms of three Iranian nationals linked to the Israeli spy service Mossad and the British Council have been upheld, and each of them will serve 10 years in prison.
Iran’s Judiciary Chief Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi says Tehran should claim compensation for the illegal detention of its supertanker ‘Adrian Darya’, which had been captured by the British Royal Navy and held in Gibraltar for six weeks.
Iran's Foreign MInistry Spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi says the fate of the 'offending' British oil tanker Stena Impero, which is impounded in Iran, is not at all related to the recent move by Gibraltar to release the Iranian oil tanker Adrian Darya (formerly Grace-1).
The local government of Gibraltar has refused a US request to seize the Iranian tanker Adrian Darya (formerly Grace-1), saying it was unable to comply because it was bound by European Union law.
Representatives of Iran, the Yemeni Houthi Ansarullah Movement, and four European countries have held a trilateral meeting in Tehran on the latest developments in the war-torn Arab country.
The supertanker Grace-1 has been renamed to “Adrian Darya” and reflagged under the Iranian flag upon the ship owner’s request, a senior Iranian official said, as the vessel prepares to leave Gibraltar on Friday.
The Iranian supertanker Grace-1 seized in Gibraltar has been finally released after almost 40 days, apparently as a goodwill gesture by the UK to secure the release of the British oil tanker Stena Impero impounded in Iran.
