INU - On Tuesday, it was widely reported that the Chinese communication giant ZTE had been penalized for violations of US sanctions against Iran, as well as against North Korea. The BBC was among those outlets to report that “the highest levels of management at ZTE approved the scheme which involved the shipment of $32m worth of US-made goods to Iran between 2010 and 2016.” In addition, the company was accused of systematically lying and deceiving investigators and the company’s own legal team over the illegal acts.
