US Department of Justice confiscated #domains sponsoring international terrorism

The US Department of Justice has confiscated three domain names acting as an oil transport front for sponsors of international terrorism.

The seizure of the domains involves three front companies: Mobin International, Sohar Fuel, and Oman Fuel, that arranged a multi-million dollar fuel shipment by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a designated foreign terrorist organization, that was bound for Venezuela.

The seized domain names are:

  • OmanFuel.com
  • SoharFuel.com
  • MobinOGP.com

All three seized domains were hosted by European domain registrars.

According to a release by the USDOJ, the United States announced that it successfully executed the seizure order and confiscated the cargo from all four vessels, totaling approximately 1.116 million barrels of petroleum. With the assistance of foreign partners, this seized property is now in U.S. custody.
