Trial for Fostoria doctor rescheduled for July 18

The trial for a Fostoria physician accused of illegally funneling more than $3.4 million in cash and goods to his native Iran has been rescheduled for July 18.

Mohammed Anvari-Hamedani, 71, originally was to go on trial March 7 in U.S. District Court in Toledo. He was charged in November, 2004, in a 38-count federal indictment that accused him of violating a federal law that prohibits new investments in Iran.

According to the indictment, Dr. Anvari-Hamedani sent cash and equipment, such as diesel engine parts and a water purification system, to the Middle Eastern country.

He also is charged with money laundering, filing false tax returns, and failing to file foreign bank account reports.
