US Attorney Robert Pitman gave the following statement regarding Christopher Tappin's sentencing today:
In this case, Mr. Tappin admitted his role in trying to facilitate the shipment of specialized batteries to Iran.
These batteries are used to make Hark missiles operational, and Mr. Tappan admitted that he submitted false shipping documentation to circumvent US export control regulations.
Those who violate federal law for monetary gain, and in the process put the national security of the United States and its allies at risk, will face prosecution and punishment for their callous disregard for the public's safety.
