Sasol ends business in Iran

South-African based Sasol says it is ending its business dealings in Iran.

The company announced Monday that it has sold its stake in the Arya Sasol Polymer Company, a company partnership based in Iran.

In April, a billboard was put up in Lake Charles by a group called UANI, United Against Nuclear Iran.

That sign stood at the corner of Belden and Enterprise, demanding Sasol choose between Louisiana or Iran.

In a news release on Monday, the group applauded Sasol's decision.
