The Saudi officials prevented the oil tanker to leave the Jeddah port despite the fact that Iran had paid all the costs of maintenance and repair that the Saudi authorities had demanded.
According to the report published earlier this month by Mehr, Saudi Arabia demanded as much as $ 200,000 per day for maintenance reasons.
According to Alalam TV, all the crew and two other Iranian ships, which were sent to accompany the oil tanker last month, are sailing towards Iran. ■
