UN blacklists vessel carrying Libyan crude oil

The UN Security Council’s Sanctions Committee on Libya has blacklisted the vessel Distya Ameya (aka Kassos), which is said to have violated UN sanctions by carrying an illicit shipment of crude oil on behalf of the rival eastern government in Libya. The Committee’s decision follows a request made by Libya’s ambassador to the UN Ibrahim Dabbashi asking for the vessel to be blacklisted, and prevents it from entering ports or unloading its cargo.

The sanctions were imposed pursuant to Resolution 2146, which prohibits illicit crude oil exports from Libya.
