Karlsruhe, Germany (dpa) – A man has been arrested in Germany for exporting military or nuclear items to Iran, federal prosecutors in the southern justice capital of Karlsruhe said Thursday.

Mohsen V, aged 48, described as having dual German and Iranian nationality, was detained Tuesday by customs agents on the basis of a judicial order issued last week. He was remanded in custody Wednesday.

He was accused of arranging deals in breach of German export control laws.

The charges involved items ‘subject to international or German trade restrictions on account of their utility for military or nuclear purposes.’ Prosecutors did not say what the items were.

A statement said his Frankfurt office had been searched along with the premises of a German trading company in the western city of Ludwigshafen.

Germany, which is leading efforts to bring Iranian nuclear research under international inspection, has instituted strict rules against exports to Iran of any items that could be used to develop nuclear weapons.
