The formal indictment against Lebanese businessman Kassem Tajeddine, deported from Morocco to the U.S., relates to allegations that he circumvented sanctions rather than the alleged financing of Hezbollah as previously believed.Instead, the indictment accused Tajeddine of restructuring his businesses in order to maintain ties with U.S. corporations, despite Treasury Department regulations prohibiting transactions between U.S. firms and sanctioned individuals.The Justice Department's case centers on at least 47 wire transfers from companies allegedly connected to Tajeddine to three U.S. firms made between 2013 and 2015 . Tajeddine has pleaded not guilty to all charges, according to a Justice Department statement.Tajeddine's lawyers were not available for comment on the indictment, or the defendant's case against the new accusations regarding his alleged indirect relationship with U.S. businesses Wednesday.
