- Story Text: Grace 1 remained anchored on Thursday afternoon (August 15) after Gibraltar decided to free the Iranian oil tanker.
The vessel was detained off the British overseas territory six weeks ago by Royal Marines.
Gibraltar Chief Minister Fabian Picardo decided to lift the detention order after formal written assurances from Tehran that the ship will not discharge its 2.1 million barrels of oil in Syria, but added that the ship had not yet been released.
It was not immediately clear when the Grace 1 would sail as the United States made a late request to seize the vessel.
