According to a recently released security report published by the German city-state of Hamburg, Iran procured illegal technology from a German-Iranian man to the tune of $1 million.
The Jerusalem Post reported that the German-Iranian suspect was identified as “Alexander J.” by the Institute for Science and International Security, a Washington-based organization that assessed the Hamburg intelligence agency report.
According to the Institute’s findings, the case indicates “the continued effort of Iran to break trade control laws and sanctions of other nations to procure items for its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.”
“Additionally, Iran continues to actively recruit sympathetic or persuadable individuals to acquire commodities for its sensitive programs,” added the report. “Some of these exports appear to violate the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action].”
The Biden administration is currently working to revive the JCPOA, which Israel slammed because it flooded the world’s top state-sponsor of terror with billions of dollars in funds that had formerly been inaccessible due to sanctions on the Islamic Republic. Iran has used that money to threaten the region, repeatedly threatening to wipe Israel off the map.
“German Federal Prosecutors Office said, Alexander J. illegally exported a multitude of complex laboratory equipment, including four spectrometers,” reported the Jerusalem Postt.
The Jerusalem Post report also noted that “Iran watchers” have flagged Germany as a “freewheeling market for Iran’s regime to secure technology and material for its illicit nuclear and missile programs.”
Germany’s sanctions on the Iranian regime require stricter enforcement, warn critics, and Germany has also permitted problematic trade in which dual-use goods with military applications reach Iran
The German media has also sounded alarms over the nation’s sale of components that can be used to construct weapons of mass destruction.
The Hamburg intelligence agency raised the issue of Hezbollah’s operations in Germany. The Lebanese terror group is an Iranian proxy army that operates a global narcotics and money laundering operation spanning from the Middle East to Europe and South America.
Hezbollah also reportedly has over 1,000 supporters in Germany, who, despite the country’s ban on the terror group, participate in 30 Hezbollah-aligned Islamic and cultural groups.
