In reality, whether they are in the right or in the wrong will depend ultimately on the reason. If they have a maritime claim to a debt as they seem to be offering as their reason, guess what, they get to arrest (detain) the vessel.

Zarif says seizure of ship in Persian Gulf is not political or security matter, but a legal one because ship owned money to #Iran #ZarifNYC



... he says the suit was 15-16 years old and the navy was implementing the decision of the court #ZarifNYC #Iran


via Reuters

Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization said a court had ordered the ship seized after ruling against Maersk Line in a case about debts brought by Pars Talaie, an Iranian company.

Tasnim, an Iranian news agency, quoted a Pars Talaie lawyer as saying the debt involved a cargo that Pars Talaie hired Maersk to take from the Iranian port of Abadan to Dubai more than a decade ago but which had never arrived.

Maersk said it was not the owner of the ship and that it was trying to establish the facts of any legal case. Rickmers said the Maersk Tigris was owned by "various private investors".

Maersk said the vessel was confronted in international waters while Rickmers said the incident occurred in a widely recognised international shipping lane.

Haman tells us that his Iranian sources said that the cargo ship has been released and has been freely underway since yesterday, yet all major national & international news reports say the ship has been seized and moved to an Iranian naval base.
Does anyone know who is telling the truth?

Real Time Sat feed (non-civilian folks) - 2 hrs ago, vessel at anchor..........



from your RT source:

Tracking imagery indicates the seized ship is currently anchored off the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas.

Although it is closer to Qeshem than it is Bandar-e Abbas.

I see there is a lot of nautical expertise present on this thread, has anyone been able to see from the ship location site, if the ship is, indeed, free and clear of Iranian seizure?

Captive? Nice choice of words to evilify Iran.

It is being legally detained.

Same as the "captives" in Guantánamo.

Prisoners of war no? Do you accept they are prisoners of war and subject to INTERNATIONAL law?

And Americans involved should stand trial in the INTERNATIONAL courts? No?

I think it does apply, especially when one remembers that the ship put out a call for help when the Iranians ....'detained' them. Fired in their direction... IIRC?

Detained is more fitting, it is the ship itself they are holding, not the persons onboard. The true terminology is the ship is under arrest, which is detained.

If Iran has a legitimate debt to collect, they are allowed under international law to arrest a vessel.

See page 17.

So they're free to go, as soon as they finish their tasty umbrella drinks?
They are 'captive'...as in being detained against their will...under force!
Geez...Lighten up, cowpoke.

Can you explain what a "cowpoke" is and why you need to use that in a post?

Ahh so the fact I mention Guantanamo is bashing America? So Guantanamo is not real? NOT happening? No captives there?
