Hong Kong-based Lingoe Process Engineering Limited (Lingoe) has served as a front company for Zhejiang Qingji in its commercial dealings with PCI and P.B. Sadr. Lingoe has facilitated financial transactions in support of Zhejiang Qingji’s centrifuge sales, affording Zhejiang Qingji access to the U.S. financial system. Iran-based transportation company Blue Calm Marine Services Company (Blue Calm) has facilitated some of these shipments for the benefit of P.B. Sadr.
PRC-based Zhejiang Qingji Ind. Co., Ltd (Zhejiang Qingji) has sold centrifuges and associated equipment and services valued at several hundreds of thousands of dollars to PCI, with P.B. Sadr acting as an intermediary. PCI has sought these centrifuges from Zhejiang Qingji to support the production of nitrocellulose, an essential raw material for propellants and combustible components.
PRC-based Li Zeming (Li), an employee of Zhejiang Qingji, has personally negotiated and executed Zhejiang Qingji’s centrifuge sales to PCI and P.B. Sadr, and even employed methods to deliberately obfuscate the ultimate end-user of Zhejiang Qingji’s shipments following warnings from the PRC government about dealing with U.S.-designated firms in Iran. PRC-based Shen Weisheng (Shen), the director and general manager of Zhejiang Qingji, has also carried out Zhejiang Qingji’s centrifuge deals, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, with PCI and P.B. Sadr.
