Connecticut Man Charged in Connection With Transfer of Controlled Telecom Equipment to Iraq

The U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut recently announced that a federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment charging Andrew Huang, owner of MacAndrew’s, Inc., a Connecticut-based export company, with acting on behalf of a Chinese government-run company to broker the sale and transfer of telecommunications equipment from China to the Government of Iraq. The sale and transfer of technology occurred during a time when such transfer was prohibited by U.S. law and international sanctions. If convicted, Mr. Huang faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 15 years and a fine of up to $500,000.

According to the AP, an arrest affidavit details "suspicious financial dealings, the role of a possible mistress, links to famous politicians and the seizure of gold and jewels." According to the affidavit, U.S. authorities searched Huang's luggage after returning from a trip to China and found photos of him with former President Bill Clinton, U.S. Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CT) and former U.S. Congressman Sam Gejdenson (D-CT).

Very cool design! Useful information. Go on!
