In 2008, Treasury exposed the alarming involvement of Iran’s national maritime carrier in Iran’s illicit procurement activities. Today, we are identifying six new IRISL front companies in Panama that took ownership of IRISL vessels after Treasury exposed and sanctioned their previous owners on the Isle of Man last November.  The six Panamanian companies are: Galliot Maritime, Mount Everest Maritime, Melodious Maritime, Indus Maritime, Rishi Maritime, and Kaveri Maritime. See this chart for an explanation of the transfer.
