Christopher Tappin pleads guilty over Iran weapons charges
01-Nov-2012 (one comment)

A retired London businessman has pleaded guilty in a US court to selling weapons parts to Iran.

Christopher Tappin, 66, made the plea at a court in El Paso, Texas, in an agreement with US prosecutors.

He is due to be sentenced on 9 January for selling parts for surface-to-air missiles.

His guilty plea calls for a 33-month sentence which prosecutors have said they would not oppose him serving in the UK.
