Stolt-Nielsen Comments on Press Reports
LONDON, July 3, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Stolt-Nielsen S.A. (Nasdaq:SNSA) (Oslo:SNI) announced that a press report published in Norway today states that a letter of April 8, 2003 from staff of the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice ("DOJ") suspended the amnesty accorded to our subsidiary Stolt-Nielsen Transportation Group (Ltd.)
