Lebanon prosecutor allows departure of ship accused by Ukraine of stealing grain

BEIRUT, Aug 2 (Reuters) - Lebanon's top prosecutor has lifted his seizure order on a ship docked in Lebanon accused by Ukraine of carrying stolen flour and barley and allowed it to sail after finding "no criminal offence committed", a senior judicial source told Reuters.

The ship, the Laodicea, remains unable to sail for the time being due to another seizure order issued by a judge in the northern city of Tripoli, where the ship is docked, on Monday, the source said. (Reporting by Timour Azhari; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
