German on trial for selling cameras to Iran
Berlin: The trial of a German man charged with selling equipment to Iran that could allegedly be used to make nuclear weapons has opened with the defendant denying the charges.
Prosecutors have charged 49-year-old Mohsen Vanaki with violating export and weapons laws for selling two high-speed cameras to Iran in early 2007. Prosecutors believe the cameras can be used to help make nuclear weapons.
Vanaki called the charges "completely false”.
Iran insists its atomic program is peaceful and geared solely toward generating electricity. The United States and key allies contend Tehran is covertly trying to build a nuclear weapon.
