(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 8 – A Hong-Kong-owned company near
Pordenone making components for aircraft, helicopters and drones
was searched Monday on suspicion of breaking an embargo in
selling dual use products to Iran, judicial sources said.
    It is suspected of selling military drones to the Middle Eastern
country, sources said.
    The plant at San Quirino was taken over by a Hong Kong group in
2018.
    It took a 75% stake, investing some 2.81 billion euros.
    The raided company illicitly used an Italian army runway for the
last 20 years, ANSA sources said.
    Four people, all Italian, have been placed under investigation
in the case including three from the local air club and one from
the company. (ANSA).
