Iran accidentally buys Israeli software

Monday, January 18, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff  

A major Israeli software company told The Media Line that it had unwittingly signed a $1 million software contract with the Tehran Chamber of Commerce.

A spokesman for DaroNet said the Iranians had purchased the company's signature business website management system via a Dutch businessman who dealt with the Israeli company's European headquarters in Belgium.

DaroNet officials didn't realize the actual clients were Iranian until they were asked to translate the software into Farsi.

Iranian officials said they were also unaware that they had purchased any software developed in Israel.

It is a criminal offense in both Israel and Iran to do direct or indirect business with the other nation.
