GENEVA (Reuters) - Detained British tanker Stena Impero began moving from the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas toward international waters at 9 a.m. Iran time on Friday, the Ports and Maritime Organization of Iran said.

The judicial file on the vessel is still open and the process of looking into “violations” committed by the ship continues, the agency said in a statement.
