EU adds another vessel to its Libya sanctions

The EU has added the vessel Lynn S to its sanctions on Libya, which among other things prohibit vessels from loading, transporting, or discharging crude oil from Libya and ban them from accessing EU ports.  It has also amended the entry for the vessel Capricorn, which it listed earlier this week, to include its IMO number (see previous blog).

See Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/1456 amending Council Regulation (EU) 2016/44 and Council Implementing Decision (CFSP) 2017/1458 implementing Council Decision (CFSP) 2015/1333.
