SYDNEY: A Fiji court has suspended the execution of a United States warrant to seize a $300-million superyacht that Washington claims is owned by sanctioned Russian oligarch Suleiman Kerimov, prosecutors said. The 348-foot (106-meter) Amadea has been targeted because Kerimov is among a group of oligarchs close to Moscow who have been sanctioned by the US over Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The vessel remains in Fiji police custody and is blocked from leaving the Pacific nation's waters despite the warrant suspension. The Amadea — which has a helipad, pool, Jacuzzi and "winter garden" on its sun deck, according to tracking website superyachtfan.com — has been berthed in Lautoka, Fiji in the South Pacific since mid-April. Last week, Fijian law enforcement, backed by US agents, took control of the superyacht under the warrant, which was lodged with the island state's High Court. The US Justice Department requested that the vessel, which it has estimated to be valued at $300 million, be seized for violating sanctions and for alleged ties to corruption. But the company officially registered as the Amadea's owner, Millemarin Investment, obtained last Friday a temporary stay on the US warrant's execution from Fiji's appellate court.
