Md. Man Accused Of Exporting Goods To Iran

GREENBELT, Md. (AP) — A Maryland man has been indicted on charges of exporting American manufactured industrial products to Iran.

A federal grand jury returned an indictment against Ali Saboonchi, 32, of Parkville, Md., on Monday. The indictment was unsealed Thursday when Saboonchi was arrested.

The five-count indictment alleges that Saboonchi and an Iranian citizen conspired to send American goods and services to Iran. Prosecutors say Saboonchi created and operated Ace Electric Co. to get goods to be sent to Iran.

Prosecutors say the goods included stainless steel filter elements, flow meters, liquid pumps and valves and numerous other industrial parts.
