IMO tricked into assigning numbers for fake shipowners shipping Iran and Venezuelan oil

The scant technical oversight of the Cameroon and Tanzania flags has enabled a small group of shipowners to dupe the UN agency to unwittingly issue the seven-digit number that forms an IMO number, the unique identifier supposed to be attached to a ship for its entire lifespan

Georgia is asking the International Maritime Organization to cancel the unique company identifiers assigned against 10 tankers. The vessels are linked to fake shipowners and managers that falsely claim to have incorporated companies in the republic
