Sudan and BNP Paribas

I have not been following this case at all, but this NY Times story, all about Iran, has this one sentence about Sudan:

BNP was also doing business with Sudan at a time that the nation was operating a genocidal regime.

Well…. alleged crimes against humanity and war crimes…  a little more “factual” for the newspaper of record… what sloppy reporting.  In addition to being a truly horrible sentence.

The full complaint of the prosecutor is available here, and there are 3-4 pages on Sudan, though basically describing the mechanics of the evasion/fraud scheme, and not naming any of the parties in Sudan, nor why they were intent of using U.S. routed bank transfers to cover their tracks.
