Canadian-Iranian sentenced to three years in the U.S. for violating Iran sanctions

Parsa, who was arrested in October 2014 following an investigation by the FBI and U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security, admitted in court that between 2009 and 2015, he conspired to obtain high-tech electronic components – some used in the production of rockets and missiles – from American companies for eventual delivery to Iran through Canada, in violation of U.S. economic sanctions. While incarcerated, he continued to violate the sanctions by ordering parts from German and Brazilian companies for Iranian customers.
