"The memo was submitted to BAFA as part of an export-permit application by the equipment seller, Minimax GmbH & Co. KG. BAFA spotted the logos, and asked Minimax to clarify the role of Sepanir in its sales to Iran, said Thorsten Gieseke, a Minimax project manager who attended the Hansa-Petrokish meeting. Mr. Gieseke said Minimax had been a client of Salzgitter and Sepanir before sanctions, that the stationery was brought to the meeting by a Petrokish representative, and that Minimax didn't notice the logos. BAFA eventually approved the export. A BAFA spokesman declined to comment. On Thursday, the spokeswoman said Minimax is canceling all of its business with Iran."
