Former International Sales Manager Pleads Guilty to Exporting Products to Company on Entity List
The Justice Department announced today that Samuel Shangteh Peng, who formerly handled export sales for Endevco Corporation, will plead guilty to five counts of exporting products to a company in India that was on the Bureau of Industry and Security's (BIS) Entity List at the time.
Peng was charged with exporting vibration amplifiers, cable assemblies and vibration processor units in 1999 and 2000 from the U.S. to Hindustan Aeronautics Limited's (HAL) Engine Division in Bangalore, India. HAL was added to the Entity List in November 1998 and removed in 2001. As a result, an export license was required to be obtained from BIS prior to exporting to HAL "all items subject to the EAR".
Peng has agreed to plead guilty to the charges, each of which carries a statutory maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison.
