A U.S. lobbyist has been charged with violating Sudanese sanctions regulations, acting as an unregistered agent of a foreign power, money laundering, passport fraud and making false statements, the Justice Department said on Tuesday.
Robert Cabelly, 61, a former State Department employee and the managing director of a Washington, D.C., consulting firm, was charged in an eight-count indictment that was unsealed and announced on Tuesday.
According to the indictment, between 2005 and mid-2007 Cabelly performed work on behalf of Sudan, a country designated by the State Department as a sponsor of terrorism, without the U.S. government’s approval, as required by law.
