Iran Shell Game Helps Syria Evade Sanctions

We have previously noted that the Iranians have attempted to use reflagging and disguised ownership to circumvent sanctions. Now Reuters is reporting Iranian ships appear to be attempting to manipulate the Automatic Identification System (AIS) to help Syria also avoid sanctions.

gCaptain had reported earlier on Irans’s attempts to help Syria here.

Thanks to Phil Leon for bringing this to my attention.
