Sierra Leone deletes nine Iranian vessels from shipping register

Sierra Leone's maritime authority has removed nine vessels from its shipping register after an investigation found they belonged to IRISL, Iran's embattled shipping line, Reuters has reported. "The vessels were deleted as a result of the fact that the companies that registered the said vessels were actually subsidiaries owned and controlled by IRISL," said acting executive director of the Sierra Leone Maritime Administration, Wurroh Jalloh. Four vessels - Alva, Amin, Tour and Benita - were removed from the register late last week, he said adding that five others had been deleted since the end of August. He did not give further details.
