Netherlands – 18 month sentence for exports to Iran

The Dutch Supreme Court has denied an appeal against an 18-month custodial sentence against an individual for his role in  seven exports of goods to the National Iranian Gas Company which is a designated person under the EU’s sanctions.

The shipments were made via Turkey or Dubai and the defence argued in the appeal that this was not “indirectly” making economic resources available to a designated person. The Supreme Court disagreed.
