The Libyan Coast Guard arrested a Greece-operated oil tanker, which was suspected of trying to smuggle 6.000 tons of oil out of the country, on August 28. The Liberian-flagged “Levante” was seized off Zawia and was taken to Tripoli, according to a navy spokesman.
On 21 July 2017, the United Nations Security Council Committee Concerning Libya announced that it has sanctioned the Tanzanian-flagged products tanker “Capricorn”, due to alleged illegal activities in Libya. The sanction means that the Capricorn is not allowed to enter any port nor to transport or discharge cargo.
EU Council adds six port authorities to its list within the current sanctions in force against Libya
