Failed Attempt to Smuggle Iran Machine Ends in Guilty Plea

GUILTYThe United States Attorney’s Office and the Office of Export Enforcement announced that a Pennsylvania corporation entered a plea of guilty to conspiracy to evade export licensing requirements.  The conspiracy was in connection with an attempt to smuggle to Iran a machine with possible military as well as civilian applications.  Under the U.S. law and regulations, American companies are forbidden to ship “dual use” items to Iran without first obtaining a license from the U.S. Government.

 

From the U.S. Department of Justice: 

Under U.S. law and regulations, American companies are forbidden to ship "dual use" items (items with civilian as well as military or proliferation applications), such as the peeler, to Iran without first obtaining a license from the U.S. Government. Aware that it was unlikely that such a license would be granted, Falcon/FIMCO, which does business in Dubai, United Arab Emirates , and other alleged co-conspirators agreed to falsely state on the shipping documents that the end-user of the peeler was Crescent International Traded and Services FZE (Crescent), an affiliated company, knowing that the machine would subsequently be shipped to Iran after being off-loaded in Dubai.
