A Canadian judge rejects an extradition request for two men wanted in the United States on charges of trying to buy U.S.-made missile parts and ship them to Iran.
Justice Selwyn Romilly of the British Columbia Supreme Court ruled Thursday the United States had failed to provide proof the men intended to buy the missile defense system parts in the United States and send them to Iran, in violation of a U.S. embargo.
One of the men arrested, Reza Akrami, was a former doctor in the Iranian army who acknowledged being a purchasing agent for Iran. He conceded he had discussed buying used jets and military parts but said he never intended to go through with the deal. His associate Mohsen Lessan, a local real estate agent in Vancouver, told investigators he and Akrami traveled to San Francisco and were entertained aboard the yacht of a man they believed was a wealthy merchant. The supposed yacht owner was an undercover U.S. agent.
