The Department of Justice announced Sept. 1 that a Pakistani national has been sentenced to 33 months in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to export defense controlled items without a license. According to a DOJ press release, the man attempted to procure gyroscopes and illegally ship them to Pakistan so they could be used by the Pakistani military. In an effort to evade detection he arranged for the gyroscopes to be purchased in the name of a shell company and caused them to be transshipped to Belgium, where he arranged for their final transport to Pakistan.
