On 25 June, a US federal court in San Antonio, Texas, accepted the guilty plea of Kunlin Hsieh, a sales manager for the Taiwanese company Junbon Enterprises Co., on charges of conspiring to violate the US sanctions laws. According to the government, Hsieh conspired over a nearly seven-year period to obtain electronic parts from US companies without disclosing that their ultimate destination was Iran. These electronics were “dual-use”, meaning that they have both military and civilian capabilities. Hsieh is scheduled to be sentenced on 25 September 2015 and faces a maximum of 20 years in prison and a possible fine of up to $1,000,000. Hsieh’s codefendant, a Latvian national also employed by Junbon, is scheduled for trial in mid-August. Both individuals have been in custody since 13 August 2014, when they were arrested in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
