Name ban on parties involved with Dan-Bunkering Syrian jet fuel deal lifted

The Danish High Court on Monday (6 January) lifted a name ban which earlier prevented the disclosure of entities allegedly involved with EU sanctioned Syrian jet fuel deals, according to the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR).
The name ban, which applied to Bunker Holding and its CEO Keld Demant, was imposed by the City court in Odense in September 2019; another individual subjected to a similar charge is still under the name ban.
The development reveals Keld Demant, along with Bunker Holding subsidiary Dan-Bunkering, facing preliminary charges by the Danish State Prosecutor for Serious and International Crime for violation of EU Syria Sanctions.
The violations specifically relate to the buying, selling or delivering of jet fuel to Syria, or for use in Syria, from 2015 to 2017. The products were supplied to tankers operated by a Russian firm called Maritime Assistance LLC.
Maritime Assistance has been determined by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) as a front company supporting the U.S-designated company OJSC Sovfracht (Sovfracht) earlier designated for operating in Ukraine.
