The United States blacklisted a Greek businessman, Dimitri Cambis, and fourteen of his companies, charging that they conspired with Iran to evade oil sanctions by acquiring petroleum tankers on Iran's behalf. Participants in the scheme included the National Iranian Oil Company and the National Iranian Tanker Company, both of which already have been sanctioned by the United States.
