WORLDTRIBUNE – 50 German firms under investigation for helping Iran’s nuke program
LONDON — Germany is investigating scores of companies suspected of aiding Iran’s nuclear program. Officials said 50 German companies may have been involved in the sale dual-use systems and material required for Iran’s nuclear project. They said Berlin has determined that the shipments were being used to complete Iran’s nuclear energy plant at Bushehr.
„The equipment was ordered by Russia and diverted to Iran,“ an official said.
On July 12, Germany prosecutor Christoph Lange identified one of the companies. Lange said the Berlin-based company Vero was suspected of shipping nuclear material to Moscow via Poland. From there, he said, the material was exported to Iran.
