USA v. Kashani, Kambiz Attar
Chicago, IL

Iran

Kambiz Attar Kashani, a dual citizen of the United States and Iran, pleaded guilty to conspiring to illegally export U.S. goods, technology, and services to end users in Iran, including the Government of Iran, in violation of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA). Between February 2019 and June 2021, Kashani and his co-conspirators, using two United Arab Emirates companies, evaded U.S. export laws by procuring electronic goods, technology, and services from U.S. technology companies for end users in Iran, including the Government of Iran, without obtaining required licenses or other authorization from the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control. Kashani acted at the direction of an arm of the Central Bank of Iran, which has been designated by the United States government as acting for or on behalf of terrorist organizations.
