Canadian-Iranian Man Sentenced To Prison Over U.S. Sanctions

A Canadian-Iranian man has been sentenced to 32 months in prison for conspiring to violate U.S. sanctions against Iran.

U.S. prosecutors said Ali Soofi, a dual citizen, “conspired to export military items from the United States to Iran, both directly and through transshipment to intermediary countries, without a license” between 2014 and 2016.

statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York added that the 63-year-old Soofi “sought to purchase and ship numerous items, including helicopters, high-tech machine-gun parts, tank parts, and military vehicles, from the United States to Iran, all without a license and while knowing that such shipments were illegal under U.S. law.”

Canadian-Iranian means an Iranian with a Canadian passport of convenience.

      That was my first thought that if they get back to canada we get sued for $50 million where Justin says that it’s cheaper to settle for $10 million.

      Maher Arar , Omar Khadr and three other muslims were harmed outside Canada by their own actions.
      It’s a no-win case because IF we try to help we get sued for taking to the abusers, if we don’t help we get sued for allow the abuse to go on.
      We can’t afford to have pro jihad muslims in Canada that globe-trot on our passport and once they get on trouble we are expected to bail them out only to see them get back here and sue us .
