The U.S. Justice Department charged on Tuesday a Dutch company and its owner with selling U.S. aircraft parts to Iran in violation of the U.S. trade embargo.

According to the Justice Department criminal complaint, the Dutch company, or the

Aviation Services International B.V. based in Heerhugowaard, the Netherlands, bought aircraft equipment from U.S. manufacturers and sold it to Iran without a license.

Moreover, the company's owner, Robert Kraaipoel, lied to U.S. inspectors who sought to enforce the trade embargo, the criminal complaint said.

According to the criminal complaint, the Dutch company is charged with making false statements and unlawful attempted export, while the owner is charged with making false statements and unlawful export of U.S. goods to Iran.

The U.S. trade embargo which has been in place since 1995 prohibits companies from selling U.S.-made goods to Iran without a license from the Treasury Department.
