Singapore Calls on Iran to Investigate Tanker Incident

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore said on Monday that it has requested the Iranian maritime authorities to investigate an incident last week when Iranian vessels fired shots at a Singapore-flagged tanker in the Persian Gulf.
Alpine Eternity had collided with an Iranian oil drilling platform in March, which triggered a call from Iran to its neighbors to seize the ship and hand it over to Iran, AFP reported.
Singapore's Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) said that it requested its Iranian counterpart prevent future recurrences, as the freedom of navigation and free flow of commerce are of critical importance to Singapore and other countries.
Habib Jadidi, a director of Iran's giant South Pars gas field operations, said Transpetrol was informed of the $300 million damage to the oil rig but had not taken steps to pay compensation. The MPA said it was investigating the oil rig incident after receiving a report from Transpetrol.
