US jails Pak man for trying to steal tech for drone Highlights The country depends mainly on theft, smuggling, illegal acquisition and other felonies conducted through its expatriates linked to Pakistan’s military-industrial establishment and its front companies. This is not the first time that Pakistan has been caught trying to procure restricted technology from the US WASHINGTON: For a country with barely enough know-how to manufacture bicycles and sewing needles, Pakistan takes great pride in having become a nuclear weapons and ballistic missile power against all odds. Less well known -- despite the AQ Khan expose from the 1970s -- is how it does it: through theft, smuggling, illegal acquisition and other felonies conducted through its expatriates linked to Pakistan's military-industrial establishment and its front companies. The sentencing this week by a US Court of an expat Pakistani businessman trying to illegally procure gyroscopes for Pakistan's Drone programme sheds some light on the methods Islamabad/ Rawalpindi is using to get around the unstated sanctions against a country with a history of war-mongering and sponsoring terrorism in the neighborhood. According to a grand jury indictment and trial that has resulted in a 33-month prison sentence, Syed Vaqar Ashraf, an expat Pakistani who was also CEO of I&E International based out of Lahore, attempted to procure gyroscopes for the Pakistan's military's drone program through a shell company called Innovative Links. The saga begins in June 2012 when Ashraf, using the name Vaqar A. Jaffrey, began asking an unnamed Tucson-based company for price quotes on gyroscopes for Unmanned Areal Vehicles (UAV) also called drones. Although he was repeatedly told the technology was regulated by the US government and required licensing for sale, Ashraf filled out false documents for 18 gyroscopes, even as he admitted to undercover agents that his client was the Pakistan government and its military. The undercover agents were planted by the Homeland Security Department after the Arizona company that Ashraf tried to get the technology from contacted them under a program called Shield America, which briefs employees of defense contractors and technology firms about the need to protect high-end export technology. In September 2013, Homeland Security agents, with assistance from the FBI, set up a face-to-face meeting with Ashraf in Vienna, Austria, to work out details of the sale. During the meeting Ashraf, who is in his 70s, reportedly told agents that Pakistan's nuclear program had been developed using technology exported from the west without a license, and they intended to go the same route with respect to Drones. He also sought to buy optical receiver modules -- also a restricted item -- that could be used in activities related to nuclear, chemical or biological weapons or missile delivery systems. According to the Tucson Sentinel, which reported on the matter in some detail because the company involved was based in Arizona, Ashraf, in course of the transaction, reportedly asked for suggestions to get around the export controls, seeking alternative descriptions that would appear to cover the items on documents, but would clear arms control hurdles from the State and Commerce departments. On August 26, 2014, Ashraf was arrested in Belgium where agents had set up a meeting to finalize the transaction, and extradited to the United States, where he pled guilty during the trial. He will be deported to Pakistan after serving his sentence. ''Ashraf attempted to procure gyroscopes and illegally ship them to Pakistan so they could be used by the Pakistani military. In an effort to evade detection, Ashraf arranged for the gyroscopes to be purchased in the name of a shell company and caused the gyroscopes to be transshipped to Belgium. Ashraf then traveled to Belgium to inspect the gyroscopes and arrange for their final transport to Pakistan,'' the U.S Justice Department said in a statement about the episode related to a country that Washington still periodically calls its ally. While Pakistan thrives on stealing and smuggling, this particular case shows the risk involved in it for India, even though it takes the more legal route. In March this year, India's Adani Aero Defence and Elbit System, the Israeli company for whom the Arizona firm made the gyroscope technology that Pakistan tried to illegally procure, agreed on a joint venture to make the Hermes 450 and Hermes 900 UAVs for the Indian armed forces. The gyroscopes are used the Hermes UAVs. This is not the first time that Pakistan has been caught trying to procure restricted technology from the US. A Pakistani-American businessman from Maryland was convicted in 2012 for illegally trying to obtain materials related to advanced nuclear technology, including radiation detection devices, resin for coolant water purification, calibration and switching equipment, attenuators and surface refinishing abrasive. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...teal-tech-for-drone/articleshow/53985631.cms?
