Indonesia Extradites Singaporean Fugitive to US for Illegal Exports to Iran

by April 1, 2016 General

“LYN was requested for extradition by US authorities for conspiracy to defraud the United States, smuggling, illegal export of goods from the United States to Iran, false statements and obstruction of justice,” Amir said in Jakarta on Thursday, as reported by CNN Indonesia.

The suspect was transferred to the US Marshalls at the Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Tangerang, Banten at 11.15 p.m., according to Amir.

In 2011, US authorities charged three Singapore-based companies and an Iranian company for illegally exporting 6,000 radio frequency modules from a Minnesota-based company to Iran.

The modules have encryption capabilities and a range that allows them to transmit data wirelessly as far as 65 kilometers when configured with a specialized antenna.
