Information on the case emerged in April when media reports said that 3 Flemish companies (AAE Chemie, ANEX and Danmar Logistics) were summoned by an Antwerp court for having exported 96 tonnes of isopropanol to Syria in violation of EU sanctions introduced in 2013.
The Antwerp court has obliged the companies to obtain special export licenses for this certain substance to allow deliveries to the Middle Eastern country.

The 7sur7 news outlet reported Thursday that prosecutors had asked the court to fine the companies 750,000 euros ($854,000) and to sentence heads of two companies to 18 months in prison.
