Export Privileges Suspended for Shipping Certain Weapons to Russia
The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an order suspending for two years the export privileges of a New York man convicted for his role in the export and attempted export from the United States to Russia of an Eo-Tech 552 holographic weapons scope and other items controlled under the Commerce Control List without first having obtained an export license. This man was previously sentenced to 12 months of probation, a criminal fine of $4,000 and a $200 assessment.
As a result, until Feb. 25, 2016, neither this man nor anyone on his behalf may directly or indirectly participate in any way in any transaction involving any commodity, software or technology exported or to be exported from the U.S. that is subject to the Export Administration Regulations. BIS is also revoking all export licenses in which this man had an interest at the time of his conviction.
