A Pakistani national has been sentenced in a closed hearing for his role in a weapons sting that offered shoulder-launched Stinger missiles and other high-powered armaments.
No one would say what sentence Mohammed Rajaa Malik received Friday. U.S.
District Judge Donald Graham closed the hearing, but it could not be learned
"I can't tell you the results, sorry," defense attorney James Eisenberg said
after the hearing, during which the courtroom doors were locked.
Malik, 52, and Diaa Mohsen, 58, an Egyptian-born U.S. citizen, pleaded guilty
to attempted arms exports in violation of the Arms Export Control Act. Both are
from Jersey City, New Jersey.
The two men allegedly discussed the purchase of missiles, machine guns,
grenade launchers and other weapons with undercover agents during a 30-month
investigation. A Stinger missile was brought to one meeting.
