“Iran sanctions – challenging the system” from Shipping & Transport International vol.9 No. 3

An interview with Maryam Taher (M Taher & Co, London) on recent developments in relation to the EU’s Iran sanctions regime. In the second part of the interview we ask her about her practical experience of acting for overseas shipping interests with cases in the Iranian legal system. Iranian entities such as the shipping lines, notably the IRISL, and banks, such as Banks Mellat and Saderat, have been key targets for international sanctions that are intended to put pressure on Iran to end its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.
