    Institute for Science and International Security › ISIS Reports › Pakistan › Man Charged with Exporting U.S. Goods to Pakistan?s Nuclear Program

    On March 9, the United States formally announced charges against a Pakistani man living in Maryland for illegally buying U.S. goods with nuclear dual-use applications between 2005 and 2010 and sending them to the Pakistani nuclear program. Nadeem Akhtar, 45, is in U.S. custody and charged with nine counts of export control, money laundering, and conspiracy related violations for exports of “items that are used directly or indirectly in activities related to nuclear reactors and the processing and production of nuclear-related materials,â€￾ according to a Department of Justice press release. According to the indictment, among the nuclear dual-use goods allegedly sent to Pakistan by Akhtar were calibration and switching equipment, resins for coolant water purification, surface refinishing abrasives, and radiation detection devices. The two Pakistani entities which received goods through Akhtar’s alleged illicit procurement operation were the Chashma nuclear power plant (CNPP) and the Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO).
