On November 1, 2019, Beng Sun Koh, also known as Michael Koh, pled guilty in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in connection with the illegal transshipment of U.S.-origin commodities to Iran via Singapore. Koh, Owner and Director of Anh Minh Cuong Co. Ltd. in Singapore, was directed to use his company to acquire U.S.-origin as chromatograph mass spectrometers and electron capture detectors classified under ECCN 3A999 on behalf of an Iranian national and his Tehran, Iran based company.
