A report in a US newspaper claimed today that the Dell Corporation will have to pay a $50,000 fine and settle a civil matter indictment.
According to US weekly, Computer Reseller News, the US commercial deparment said that Dell ?falsified key trade documents? to sell computer equipment to Iran.
But Dell still neither admits nor denies the findings, said CRN.
The issue centres around shipments of PC equipment to Iran, formerly called Persia, in the early 1990s, in the wake of the Gulf War. That is construed as an own goal by the USA, according to CRN.
The newspaper further said today that the investigation was conducted by the Dallas office of the Bureau of Export Administration and started in August 1993.
The commercial department of the federal US subpoenaed those documents, the report added.
A Dell UK representative said she was unfamiliar with the proceedings and was unable to comment on whether the reports were true or false.
