Defense Ministry to probe technology sales to Iran

December 24, 2011 19:16

The Defense Ministry has launched an initial probe into reports that an Israeli hi-tech company knowingly sold Internet-surveillance equipment through a distributor in Denmark to Iran, the ministry said on Saturday.

"We will decide if to launch a full investigation based on the findings," the ministry said.

If launched, the investigation will be led by MALMAB, the Defense Ministry security department.

The probe was launched after Bloomberg reported Friday that Allot Communications Ltd, a company based in Hod Hasharon, sent the surveillance equipment to a Danish distributor which then repackaged the gear and shipped it to Iran.
