Is Siemens helping Iran? German customs officials intercepted a Siemens shipment of compressors on its way to Iran, Der Spiegel reported Saturday.
According to the German magazine, the compressors sent by Siemens are worth an estimated 16 million Euros and were apparently meant to be used as part of Iran's nuclear program.
The German government is now weighing its next moves vis-à-vis Siemens, which has apparently violated international commerce regulations. However, a Treasury spokeswoman said she cannot confirm the report at this time.
The compressors, which were sent from Sweden, were nabbed by customs officials in Hamburg en route to Iran, Der Spiegel said. According to the report, the shipment in question was part of a larger transaction between the German giant and Iran, worth roughly 80 million Euros.

Didn’t Cisco or some other major US firm do the same thing for Red China.
I guess they can’t help themselves. Providing products and services to dictators who wish to murder innocent people adds to the bottom line, doesn’t it? No moral or ethical compass appears in the executive suite or board of directors given their usual mantra “if we don’t do it our competitors will and we don’t want that, do we?” Pathetic.
FYI ping, backhoe :)
Thanks- I’ll save those.
