The allegations involved Micei’s knowing participation in seven export transactions using an individual subject to a Denial Order as an employee or agent to negotiate for and purchase items in the United States for export from the United States to Micei in Macedonia. The Order also affirmed the recommended sanctions of a civil penalty of $126,000, and a denial of Micei’s export privileges for a period of five years.
