Turkish tanker HACI TELLI with 11 crew was seized by, well, difficult to say by whom exactly, in Zuwarah, northwest Libya, exact date unknown. Libya or whatever is in power at Zuwarah, said that it’s a commercial dispute, vessel was detained because only part of loaded oil product was paid by charterer of the vessel. Turkey on Mar 1 already slated seizure as an act of piracy. There is no politics in this seizure or hijack, said Turkish officials.
