The Department of Justice reports that an Iranian man has been sentenced to 15 months in prison for his participation in the illegal export of sensitive military-use technology to Iran. From 2009 through December 2015 this man was a part-time employee of a Malaysian company that operated as a front for an Iran-based company specializing in both broadcast communications and microwave communications. To help the Malaysian company unlawfully acquire sensitive export-controlled technology from the U.S. on behalf of the Iranian company, the man and his co-conspirators concealed the ultimate destination and end-users through false statements, unlawful financial transactions, and other means. For example, when the goods were received by the Malaysian company, the man repackaged and exported them to Iran.
