On April 9, 2012, AGG Of Counsel Gene M. Burd was interviewed by U.N. Radio for a story regarding Viktor Bout, a Russian citizen who has been extradited to the U.S. from the Thailand on charges of conspiracy to sell weapon to terrorist groups. Mr. Bout was also listed on a U.N. banned persons list. Mr. Bout was found guilty and sentenced on April 5, 2012, to a 25-year prison term.
