A professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim has been indicted on charges he broke sanctions against Iran by inviting guest researchers from Iran and giving them access to a laboratory.

News bureau NTB reported that the professor, who was not identified, denies the charges of violating the sanctions along with rules regarding export control and data break-ins. It’s alleged that could have contributed to providing valuable information for Iran’s nuclear program.

The alleged violations occurred during a period from February 2018 to July 2019.
