WASHINGTON (AP) - An Australian man has been indicted along with his company in a scheme to export components for drones, torpedoes and other military technology to Iran.
A federal grand jury in Washington on Wednesday indicted David Levick, who remains at large and is believed to be living in Australia. Also charged is Levick's Australia-based company, ICM Components, Inc.
Prosecutors say that over a two-year period beginning in March 2007, Levick and ICM solicited purchase orders from a trading company representative in Iran for aircraft parts. Levick allegedly used a broker in Florida to order the foods, and prosecutors say he also hid the end use from manufacturers, distributors and shippers.
It was not immediately clear if Levick or the company has a lawyer.
