Four South Floridians have been charged with violating U.S. export control laws for shipping defense articles to Venezuela.

According to the materials published earlier today by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Florida, the four individuals were involved in a conspiracy to unlawfully export defense articles to the Venezuelan Air Force. Items exported or caused to be exported included actuators, pressure switches, valves, and hydraulic solenoid parts, among other things.

The parties were conducting business through Spain and, it appears, at least one Spanish defense contractor. In addition to spare parts for military aircraft, the parties were also trying to procure F-16 ejection seats, munitions, as well as aircraft engines.

Additional information about the matter is available at the U.S. Attorney's website.
