Dan-Bunkering blames name confusion for new Syria case

The case from August last year, when Danske Bank reported Dan-Bunkering to Danish authorities on a suspicion of supplying fuel to Syria was caused by mix-up in names, says the company. Dan-Bunkering, however, is not able to get the explanation verified.
