Operator of a Greek-flagged tanker carrying Venezuelan crude denounced in a statement on Saturday November 2nd the accusations by Brazilian investigators of being behind tarring Brazilian coastline as lacking proof, AFP reported.

The operator, Delta Tankers Ltd, denied the ship's involvement in any Ship to Ship operation or any leakage, and said the ship did not stop or slow down during its passage from Venezuela and Melaka in Malaysia.

Brazilian police said that the Greek-flagged ship was the only one existing near the origin of the spill in the period between July 28th and 29th, according to Reuters.
