From Sanctions Wiki
Babak Zanjani The EU sanctions describe Babak Zanjani as “a key facilitator for Iranian oil deals and transferring oil related money” and accuses First Islamic Bank of being used to channel Iranian oil-related payments. Zanjani said the complex nature of his companies’ transactions, involving large sums, might have misled EU authorities.
Companies of Babak Zanjani are or may be involved in the Labuan Iran oil smuggle at the eastern coast of Malaysia. Labuan has been serving as a drop-off spot for Iranian crude.

Iran is using a little-known port (Labuan) off the East Malaysia coast to hide millions of barrels of oil from Western sanctions, according to shipping data, industry sources and officials.
The Lantana, a tanker operated by the National Iranian Tanker Co (NITC), transferred its cargo of around 1 million barrels of crude oil to the Titan Ruchira, a floating storage vessel, off the tiny tropical island of Pulau Kuraman near Labuan, port and shipping industry officials said. Around August 10, another Iranian tanker, the Motion, discharged as much as 2 million barrels of fuel oil on to the Titan Tulshyan in the same area, said the officials.
Titan hired out the two tankers to Glammarine, a little-known shipping company that only recently registered in Labuan. Glammarine took the two ships under a 6-month charter, with Titan’s crews running the vessels’ day-to-day operations and Glammarine taking responsibility for finding the cargo and paying for use of the ships.
Glammarine agreed to let a company called Account International Safe Oil use the Titan Ruchira and Titan Tulshyan to store 4 million barrels of Iranian oil, shipping sources said. Account International is not registered in Malaysia or Hong Kong, and Reuters was unable to find an address for the company or contact staff for comment. Buyers of Iranian oil in China, India and Japan said they had not heard of the company.
May 04, 2013 – News Item from The Times of Central Asia (TCA) – U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control imposes sanctions on Iranian tycoon having assets in Tajikistan
DUSHANBE (TCA) — The U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) imposed sanctions on 42-year-old Iranian billionaire businessman Babak Zanjani, who has business in Tajikistan.
“OFAC” has published on its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (“SDN List”) the names of six entities and Babak Zanjani, whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to Executive Order 13382 of June 28, 2005, “Blocking Property of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferators and Their Supporters.”
The Kont Investment Bank, which started work in Dushanbe, and is founded by Turkey’s Kont Kosmetik also fell under sanctions.
Kont Investment Bank owns capital of Asian Express Airline registered in Tajikistan. The Asian Express Airline in turn owns a whole package of shares of Dushanbe bus station, which is called after reconstruction Asian Express Terminal and functions since March 2013 after rehabilitation. President Rahmon attended the inauguration ceremony.
The EU said he was helping Iran to get round international sanctions by selling oil abroad and channelling the profits back via his Malaysia-based First Islamic Bank.
Mr Zanjani is adamant that he has been wrongly accused.
“I didn’t buy Iranian crude oil. I was buying low quality fuel oil to sell to Malaysia,” he said in an interview with BBC.
The U.S. believes Zajani managed a network, which handled transportation of oil and cash in circumvention of economic sanctions imposed on Iran with the purpose to make it stop its nuclear program.
The network included Iranian’s Naftiran Intertrade Company registered in Switzerland, Malaysia’s First Islamic Investment Bank Ltd., it served Iranian government-controlled organizations, National Oil company, Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.
