US sanctions Hong Kong company for illegal transshipment to Iran


Green Green Industries (Hong Kong) Ltd has been sanctioned by the US Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) for its alleged role in the illegal transshipment of "tens of millions of dollars' worth" of US-origin technology and electronic components to Iran.
The company, which is owned by Hamed Dehghan, CEO of Gostar Boshra LLC (PKGB), operated as a front since 2017 to procure technology for Iran's weapons of mass destruction manufacturing programme, according to OFAC and the FBI, reported American Shipper.
Mr Dehghan also served as general manager of Ebtekar Sanat Ilya, another company that participated in the transshipment scheme to acquire export-controlled, military end-use equipment from US suppliers for Iranian entities, OFAC said.
Mr Dehghan's main Iranian client for the US-controlled technology was Rastafann Engineering Co, which was placed on OFAC's Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDN) List in October 2017, for providing support to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Naval Defence Missile Group.
Ebtekar Sanat Ilya's customers included the Iran Aircraft Manufacturing Industrial Co. (HESA), Shahid Bakeri Industrial Group (SBIG) and Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group (SHIG), all of which have been previously placed on the SDN List. Three of Ebtekar Sanat Ilya's managers, Hadi Dehghan, Shaghayegh Akhaei and Mahdi Ebrahimzadeh, are now added to the SDN List.
OFAC said any property or interests in property of these sanctioned entities or individuals that are in the US or in the possession or control of US persons are now blocked.
"We urge governments worldwide to recognise the extraordinary lengths to which the regime in Tehran will go to conceal its behaviour and to ensure that their companies and financial institutions are not facilitating Iran's proliferation activities," said the Treasury's undersecretary for terrorism Sigal Mandelker in a statement.
