April 7 (Bloomberg) -- A Chinese company that supplies banned weapons to Iran and its manager were charged with concealing the company’s identity from U.S. banks, Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau said.
“What we’re trying to do is make every effort to prosecute a company that is perhaps the largest supplier of weapons of mass destruction to Iran,” Morgenthau said at a press conference. “We want to have transparency in these dealings so that everybody understands what the Iranians are up to.”
Among the materials shipped from LIMMT to the Iranian Defense Industries Organization were 15,000 kilograms of an aluminum alloy used almost exclusively to make long range missiles; more than 30,000 kilograms of tungsten-copper plates, and 1,700 kilograms of graphite cylinders used for banned electrical discharge machines, according to prosecutors.
