Kuwaiti faces charges in US

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

Kuwaiti na­tional Fuad Is­mail Dashti will ap­pear in a US court to­day, charged with com­pro­mis­ing na­tional se­cu­rity. In­formed sources said Dashti was ar­rested last week on ar­rival at San Fran­cisco air­port, and was charged with com­pro­mis­ing na­tional se­cu­rity for sell­ing air­craft spare parts to Iran. Sources said Dashti’s fam­ily asked a lawyer to fol­low his case, which the court will con­sider in its first ses­sion. US laws im­pose strict pun­ish­ments on for­eign com­pa­nies or in­di­vid­u­als that deal with Iran to pro­vide it with any tech­nol­ogy re­lated to pro­duc­ing weapons of mass de­struc­tion. — Al-Rai
