A dual citizen of the United States and Iran will serve a 30-month prison sentence for illegally conspiring to send electronic goods to Iranian and Lebanese terrorist groups, UPI reports.
The Justice Department announced the sentence of 44-year-old Kambiz Attar Kashani of Brooklyn, N.Y.
Kashani allegedly conspired with others to send technology from several U.S. companies to the Lebanese terrorist organization Hizballah, and Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. Both organizations are designated terrorist groups by the Pentagon.
"This is a sobering reminder that illegally exporting material is not an abstract economic concern -- it is a crime with a direct impact on the safety of the American people," said Alan E. Kohler Jr., assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division.
