Military Antennae to Hong Kong & Singapore 

On January 20, 2012, Rudolf L. Cheung, the head of research and development at a company in Massachusetts that manufactures antennae, pleaded guilty in the District of Columbia to one count of conspiracy to violate the Arms Export Control Act in connection with the illegal export of 55 military antennae from the United States to Hong Kong and Singapore. Cheung was charged in a criminal information on December 2, 2011. According to court documents, Cheung’s company received a query in 2006 from a firm in Singapore seeking two types of military antennae. After the Singapore firm refused to fill out the necessary end-user forms, the export compliance officer at Cheung’s company stopped the transaction. Cheung then conspired with an associate at another U.S. company to bypass the export compliance officer at Cheung’s company by having the associate purchase the antennae from Cheung’s firm and then export them separately to Singapore without a State Department license. The conspiracy resulted in the illegal export, between July and September 2007 of 55 military antennae from the United States to the Hong Kong and Singapore addresses of a company called Corezing International. Corezing, based in Singapore, has been charged in a separate indictment for its role in this particular antennae transaction. Corezing has also been charged for its role in a separate conspiracy involving the illegal export of radio frequency modules from the U.S. to Iran, some of which later ended up in Improvised Explosive Devices in Iraq. This investigation was conducted by ICE, FBI and BIS
