Advisory Committee and Species Working Group Technical Advisor Appointments, 56055-56056 [2010-23015]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 178 / Wednesday, September 15, 2010 / Notices Kosarian Fard’s written testimony in the U.K. litigation included the following concerning his ‘‘close relationship’’ with Mahan Airways and some of the acts he took at its direction: As I have said, I was majority shareholder of Blue [Airways] but in the summer of 2007, I agreed to sell a 51% stake in Blue to Skyco (UK) Ltd. I did this at the request of Mahan. Given my close relationship with Mahan, I did not ask questions but, again, acted on the basis of the trust I had in Mr. Arabnejad and Mr. Mahmoudi [two Mahan Airways’ directors]. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES Kosarian Fard Written Statement to U.K. Court (signed and dated May 27, 2009 by hand), at page 7, paragraph 12. The record also shows that Gatewick is located at the same G#22 Dubai Airport Free Zone location formerly used by the Blue Airways FZE and Blue Airways UAE. Based on the information provided by OEE and Gatewick’s submission, I find that Gatewick’s significant and on-going business relationship and/or connections with Mahan Airways satisfies the requirements of Section 766.23, and that Gatewick’s addition to the TDO as a related person is necessary to prevent evasion. This is demonstrated not only by the nature and significance of Gatewick’s relationship with Mahan Airways and its stated role as Mahan Airways’ sole booking agent in the UAE for Mahan’s cargo and freight forwarding services, but also by Gatewick’s participation with Mahan Airways in the 2009 transaction involving the export of computer motherboards to Iran, via the UAE, in violation of the outstanding TDO against Mahan. It is further demonstrated by Kosarian Fard’s central role at Gatewick, as Managing Director and owner, his admitted close relationship with Mahan Airways, and the prominent role he played in the unlawful re-export of Aircraft 1–3 to Mahan.
