Iran's MPs call for charging foreign ships a toll to cross Strait of Hormuz

Members of the Iranian parliament hailed the seizing of a British tanker in the Strait of Hormuz by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), calling for putting a toll to ships passing through the narrow waterway.

In a statement signed on Sunday, 160 Iranian lawmakers cast support to IRGC’s move, urging the government to approve a motion to charge a toll to ships passing through the Strait of Hormuz.

The IRGC seized the British tanker, Stena Impero, on Friday while it was passing through the Strait of Hormuz en route to Saudi Arabia.
