New Hampshire Company Pleads Guilty to Assisting in Unlicensed Export to Cuba

The U.S. Attorney for the District of New Hampshire announced that LogicaCMG, Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of UK-based Logica CMG PLC, pleaded guilty on April 25, 2007 to illegally causing computer servers to be exported to Cuba. After accepting the guilty plea, the company was ordered to pay a $50,000 fine.

The violation to which LogicaCMG pleaded guilty involved the unlicensed export to Cuba in 2001 of a computer server used for enabling and processing text messaging over a wireless telecommunications network. The export was allegedly caused by LogicaCMG’s corporate predecessor, MG Telecommunications, Inc., which had offices in New Hampshire. CMG maintained a sister company in Brazil.

According to the U.S. attorney's office, in August 2001, CMG management and other personnel employed in the Nashua, New Hampshire facility assisted CMG's Brazil operation in filling an order for the server to be shipped to a customer in Panama and thereafter to be shipped by the customer to an end-user in Cuba and to be installed in Havana, Cuba. The U.S. Government alleged that CMG obtained the required hardware, configured it and installed the operating system in its Nashua facility, and shipped the server to the customer in Panama knowing it would ultimately be delivered to Cuba.

Logica acquired CMG in 2002 and therefore assumed liability for the actions of CMG.
