DUTCH COURT IMPOSES CONFISCATION ORDERS AGAINST GAS TURBINE MANUFACTURER AND BAHRAINI SUBSIDIARY OVER DUAL-USE EXPORTS TO IRAN

On 18 February, a news release from the Dutch courts reported that a court in Limburg had convicted Euroturbine BV and 4 other defendants for the unlicensed export of gas turbine parts to Iran.  It is said that the company, together with a Bahrain-based subsidiary and other affiliates, set up structures to supply the gas turbine components to customers in Iran.  The companies established in the Netherlands and Bahrain have been fined €500,000 and €350,000 respectively.
