Gibraltar police discharge crew members of seized Iranian Grace 1 supertanker

London, July 13: Gibraltar police said on Friday every one of the four-team individuals from the seized Iranian Grace 1 tanker has been discharged on bail without charge after it was captured a week ago on suspicion of breaching the European endorses by taking crude oil to Syria.

Earlier on Friday, the Gibraltar police said they had captured the two second mates from the tanker, multi-day after the vessel’s skipper and boss official were captured.

In an announcement, the police said each of the four-team individuals was allowed safeguard with conditions. It didn’t detail, yet said the examination was continuous and that the Grace 1 keeps on being kept.

Iran has requested the prompt arrival of an oil tanker seized by Royal Marines off the bank of Gibraltar, cautioning Britain: “This is a dangerous game and has consequences.”

It comes as strains mount in the Gulf after a Royal Navy warship prevented Iranian watch pontoons endeavoring to hinder a British tanker cruising through the Strait of Hormuz.

The Iranian supertanker – the Grace 1 – was held onto a week ago after it was associated with taking raw petroleum to Syria in rupture of EU sanctions.

Calling for the immediate release of Grace 1, an Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson told the state-run IRNA news agency: “This is a dangerous game and has consequences.”
