San Diego, CA – United States Attorney Laura E. Duffy announced in a PRESS RELEASE this past week Los Angeles-based businessman Sunil Jiwat Mirwani was sentenced to 27 months in prison for evading customs duties on more than $30 million in Chinese-made wearing apparel. The sentence, handed down by U.S. District Judge Michael M. Anello, also required Mirwani to forfeit his interest in over $30,000 in cash, the contents of a Hong Kong-based bank account—plus an inventory of more than 220,000 pairs of blue jeans valued at more than $1 million. In addition, Judge Anello sentenced Mirwani’s corporation, M Trade, Inc., to five years of probation.
