A man with dual Romanian and US citizenship has been sentenced in Miami to almost three years in prison for his role in a plot to sell prohibited aircraft parts to Iran. Traian Bujduveanu was sentenced Thursday by US District Judge Patricia Seitz. He pleaded guilty in April to a single to a single conspiracy count. Also pleading guilty and sent to prison in the plot was Iranian-born Hassan Keshari. Prosecutors said both men were illegally helping Iran obtain parts for such aircraft as the F-14 Tomcat fighter, C-130 cargo plane and AH-1 attack helicopter. The parts were shipped from South Florida to Dubai and on to Iran.
