Gibraltar refuses to release Iranian tanker

A source close to the Gibraltarian government has dismissed claims it will release Iranian tanker ‘Grace 1’ after it was captured off the coast last month. The British territory said a hearing on the tanker’s fate would take place on August 15, yet Iranian media has reported it was due to be freed on Tuesday. The Grace 1 tanker was seized with the help of royal marines after the Iranian vessel was accused of violating European sanctions by taking oil to Syria, a charge Tehran denies. Image: AP
