It’s Official. . . Berwyn Resident Receives 4 Years for Illicit Business Deals with Iran

Following up on this morning’s posting, Berwyn resident Ali Amirnazmi, a dual US and Iranian citizen who ran TranTech Consultants, an Exton business specializing in software, received a 4-year sentence today for his illicit business deals with Iran.

 Amirnazmi, a chemical engineer was convicted last year on charges that included violations of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act – which authorized sanctions against Iran, making false statements to government officials, and bank fraud.

The judge said she weighed many factor before delivering the sentence, including the need to deter Amirnazmi and others from committing similar crimes. She also ordered five years of supervised release for Amirnazmi after the prison term. He already has served about 18 months. Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen A. Miller described Amirnazmi, who was prone to courtroom outbursts, “as a narcissistic, unrepentant liar committed to boosting Iran’s chemical prowess”.

Guess we won’t be seeing Amirnazmi walking around Berwyn anytime soon.
