Yesterday, the UN Security Council renewed the designation of a vessel named ‘Capricorn’ under its Libya sanctions list relating to the illicit exportation of petroleum from Libya. The designation was renewed pursuant to para 11 of UNSC Resolution 2146 (2014), and is valid until 17 April 2018. As a result, the ship will continue to be subject to a UN port ban, as well as a prohibition not to load, transport or discharge petroleum from Libya aboard the vessel. UN press release here.
On 2 February 2018, the UN Security Council updated this vessel’s listing by changing, among other things, its name from ‘Capricorn’ to ‘Nadine’. UN press release here.
