A Dutch company and its owner have been charged with violating US embargoes by illegally exporting parachutes, aircraft parts and equipment that could be used in unmanned aerial vehicles to Iran, federal authorities said Tuesday.
The defendants, who allegedly bought the items from companies in Connecticut, Arizona, Florida, Kansas and New Hampshire, also have been charged with making false statements on export control documents, authorities said.
The defendants named in the recently unsealed complaint in Washington, D.C., are Aviation Services International, B.V., an aircraft parts supply company located in the Netherlands, and the company's owner, Robert Kraaipoel. Two additional Dutch companies, Delta Logistics L.V., and TPC, B.V., which are owned by Kraaipoel's son, are also listed as defendants.
