The Manhattan district attorney on Tuesday announced a sweeping indictment charging a businessman with setting up accounts at New York banks to help Iran get materials to make nuclear weapons. The 118-count indictment accused a Chinese national and his company of violating a United Nations embargo with nearly 60 transactions over the past two years. The UN embargo bans the transmission to Iran of certain missile and nuclear technology that would permit the development of nuclear weapons. The company is headquartered in Dalian, China.
