IRAQ ROADSIDE BOMB PARTS CAME FROM MIAMI AND WERE SHIPPED TO DUBAI AND THEN INTO IRAN

Indictment: Iraq bomb parts came from South Florida; Roadside bombs used against U.S. troops in Iraq were built by Iranians, with high-tech parts exported by South Florida companies, according to a federal indictment returned in Miami on September 11th.
U.S. officials say electronic parts shipped by South Floridians were used to make roadside bombs planted by anti-U.S. forces in Iraq.

A federal grand jury in Miami returned the 13-count indictment on Sept. 11 and unsealed it on Wednesday. Included in the charges are conspiracy, violations of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and the United States Iran Embargo, and making false statements to federal agencies in connection with the export of thousands of U.S. goods to Iran.

Sixteen foreigners and overseas businesses were charged in Miami on Wednesday with illegally supplying U.S.-made electronic parts to Iran for producing explosives to kill American soldiers fighting in the Iraq War, federal authorities said. At a press conference Wednesday, FOX News learned that the defendants are accused of ordering over 12,000 microchips to be used as IED triggers from U.S. manufacturers and shipping them to the "middle countries." Since the American suppliers were deemed unwitting accomplices, they have not been charged.

Charged in the indictment are Iranian nationals Ali Akbar Yahya, Farrokh Nia Yaghmaei, Bahman Ghandi, Farshid Gillardian, Isaac Gillardian and Ahmad Rahzad Majid Seif as well as Kaam Chee Mun of Malaysia and Djamshid Nezhad of Germany.

The corporations charged include Dubai-based businesses Mayrow General Trading, Atlinx Electronics, Micatic General Trading, Madjico Micro Electronics and Al-Faris. Neda Industrial Group, an Iran-based business and Eco Biochem Sdn BHD and Vast Solution Sdn BHD, both Malaysian businesses, were also named. Several of the companies fall under Iranian state control.

The computer chips and other high-tech goods -- made in South Florida and other regions of the country -- were used by Iranian-controlled companies to make roadside bombs, federal officials said. The chips play an integral role in triggering the bombs, known as improvised explosive devices, or IEDs.

The IEDs have been a major cause of death and injuries to U.S. soldiers fighting in Iraq.''We cannot allow American-made goods to threaten our soldiers abroad,'' said U.S. Attorney R. Alexander Acosta, who said that the part numbers on the U.S.-made microchips matched those found on unexploded IEDs in Iraq.

Still, officials could not tie any of the illegal exports cited in the Miami case to actual deaths on the battlefield.None of the eight individuals -- who were indicted on the seventh anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks -- has been arrested, but U.S. authorities will be seeking their extradition.

The indictment, unsealed Wednesday, spans 2004 through the present. It stems from an investigation led by the Commerce Department that exposed a global network selling U.S.-made ''dual use'' goods to Iran.In 2005, investigators found an American-made computer circuit in an unexploded roadside bomb in Iraq. Through serial numbers and shipping records, they traced the computer chip's path from its manufacturer in California to Mayrow General Trading in Dubai, according to an April New York Times article.

Mayrow General Trading was among the eight companies named in the Miami indictment Wednesday.

Federal Register: June 5, 2006....General Order Concerning Mayrow General Trading and Related Entities. The United States Government, including the United States Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), has come into the possession of information giving reason to believe, based on specific and articulable facts, that Mayrow General Trading and its related entities, Micatic General Trading; Majidco Micro Electronics; Atlinx Electronics; Micro Middle East Electronics; Narinco; F.N. Yaghmaei; and H. Ghasir, have acquired electronic components and devices capable of being used to construct Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). These commodities have been, and may continue to be, employed in IEDs or other explosive devices used against Coalition Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Cited as illegal export sales in the indictment: 12,000 Microchip brand micro-controllers, 5,000 integrated circuits and about 345 global positioning systems.Microchip-brand micro-controllers are computer chips that could be used in household electronics or to make IED triggers.
