An Iranian man indicted in 2013 has been sentenced to 20 months in prison after plotting to supply weapon materials for Iran’s weapons of mass destruction program. An assistant U.S. attorney commented that Pourghannad knew the materials he had purchased were going to be used for this program and understood how the carbon fiber would be utilized. This is similar to a case in 2012 where a man was charged with conspiring to send carbon fiber to China. Throughout 2008 and 2013 Pourghannad bought thousands of pounds of the material from U.S. manufacturers and then falsified shipping records and documents in order to send the carbon fiber to his illegal destination.
