Man Indicted for Illegal Export of Graphite

A U.S. federal grand jury yesterday indicted a Pennsylvania man who helped illegally export to the United Arab Emirates material that could be used in a nuclear program, the Associated Press reported (see GSN, Nov. 2005).

Manoj Bhayana, 39, is accused of conspiring with another person and multiple companies to falsify documents related to the graphite exports. U.S. law bars export of that form of graphite because it “had potential nuclear and military applications,” said U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan (Associated Press/phillyBurbs.com, June 21).
