US court rules North Korea’s seizure of oil tanker justified
NEW YORK (Reuters) – A U.S. court ruled in March 2020 that it had seized a Singapore oil tanker bound for North Korea and allowed it to own the ship.

According to the international news agency, the United States had confiscated a Singapore oil tanker going to supply oil to North Korea in 2020 in violation of international sanctions. The oil tanker was also accused of supplying oil for four months in 2019.

However, now a federal judge in New York has ordered the confiscation of the oil tanker, saying that the ownership of the Singapore oil tanker, which has been in Cambodia for a year, gives the United States the right to take ownership.
During the hearing in the US Federal Court, the Singapore company and its owner were charged with conspiracy to evade economic sanctions and money laundering.

A statement from the US Department of Justice stated that the Singapore oil tanker was confiscated in violation of a global ban on oil sales to North Korea. The oil tanker contains 2,734 tonnes of oil worth 15 1.5 million.

The Justice Department statement added that the oil tanker was allegedly used to transport oil products on North Korean ships and to deliver oil directly to the North Korean port of Nampo.

It should be noted that the Cambodian government had seized the oil tanker two years ago at the request of the United States, after which a case was filed in the US Federal Court in which the owners of the oil tanker company were also involved.
