Middelfart-based international bunker trading firm Dan-Bunkering is facing allegations from local Danish news agency DR of supporting the Syrian war by delivering jet fuel to Russian fighter aircraft.
The European Union, of which Denmark is a member, introduced sanctions against Syria in 2014 as part of effort to aimed at deescalating violence in the civil war.
The sanctions cover the delivery of oil products, including jet fuel, for use in Syria.
In summary, DR claimed Dan-Bunkering delivered jet fuel to Syria from January 2016 to May 2017; a minimum of DKK 104 million (US $1.5. million) was transacted through at least six deliveries totalling 30,000 metric tonnes (mt).
Peter Appel, Partner of legal firm Gorissen Federspiel, who represents Dan-Bunkering on 10 April told DR the following:
“It can thus be stated:
– that Dan-Bunkering has never supplied fuel to Syria.
– that Dan-Bunkering has not acted in contravention of EU rules.
– that Dan-Bunkering has not supplied fuel to a customer subject to EU sanctions rules.”
