Export Privileges Suspended for Unlicensed Exports of Defense Articles
The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued separate orders suspending the export privileges of three persons convicted of knowingly and intentionally exporting defense articles designated on the U.S. Munitions List to Mexico and the Philippines without the required State Department licenses. These men were previously sentenced to prison sentences of 50 months to 135 months and special assessments of $100 to $200. One was also assessed a $2,000 criminal fine.
As a result, for five or ten years from their respective convictions neither these individuals nor anyone on their 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 these individuals had an interest at the time of their convictions.
