Canadian convicted of shipping nuclear materials to Iran

Mahmoud Yadegari tried to send transducers to native Iran

A Canadian man was found guilty in a Toronto court on Tuesday of shipping materials to Iran that could be used in nuclear technology. Mahmoud Yadegari is the first person convicted of violating U.N. regulations that restrict the export of certain goods to Iran. Yadegari’s arrest last April followed several unsuccessful attempts to ship transducers to his native Iran. The Toronto man faces a maximum of five years in prison for his offences, which also include convictions on eight other counts, including forgery and violations of the Customs Act.
