US imposes sanctions on Iranian shippers in Malta

The US imposed sanctions on three shipping companies located in Malta that belong to Iran's Revolutionary Guard, Israel Radio reported on Monday.
First Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Stuart Levey said that Iran forges documents, changes ship names and sends cargo through front companies located abroad in order to get around international sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic.
Levey called on world governments and shipping companies to be aware of Iran's attempts to circumvent the sanctions.
