Pak Caught in Nuclear Smuggling Activity

Pak Caught in Nuclear Smuggling Activity

India's neighbour has become a nuclear weapons and ballistic missile power because of it's unorthodox methods, putting it mildly as it comes. Pakistan has been caught in the act of smuggling American technology for it's nuclear and missile program. The United States has indicted five Pakistani nationals associated with a Rawalpindi-based front company called 'Business World'.

Pakistan is a country with hardly any base in science and technology. It has over the years using theft and subterfuge, been involved in nuclear smuggling and illicit acquisition of missile technology. The five individuals were based in Canada, the United Kingdom and Hong Kong and were operating an international procurement of front companies in order to acquire U.S. origin goods for the AERO (Advanced Engineering Research Organization) and the PAEC (Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission), without export licenses in violation of federal laws.
