Iranian multi-billionaire Babak Zanjani has been arrested, Fars News Agency quoted Iran Judiciary spokesman Mohsen Ejei as saying on Dec.30.
Before, the Central Bank of Iran announced on Dec. 28 that Zanjani has not paid any sold oil's money to the Central Bank of Iran.
Zanjani who is the owner or shareholder of at least 70 companies and banks including Bank Arzesh in Tajikistan and First Islamic Bank had been involved in Iran's oil sell and transferring the sold oil's money to the country to bypass the imposed western sanctions on the country.
Zanjani's name also was mentioned in Turkey's latest corruption scandal.
Earlier on Dec. 22, Iranian media outlets quoted Iranian MP Mostafa Afzalifard as saying Zanjani has paid his 2.06 billion debt to Iran's Oil Ministry.
The Central Bank has affirmed that the sum has been deposited to the Oil Ministry's account, Afzalifard added.
Iranian MP Saeed Heydari said that the document which Zanjani presented to the parliament's Article 90 Commission on payments is spurious.
Turkey goes to pot over this corruption and other stuff and then this.......some guys have been naughty and i have a feeling the iranians have found out who......they don't grab guys like this unless they have be duping.....about to get very very weird.
For now, in the U. S., the Koch brothers are merely harassed.
> Crap hitting the fan now further to article i posted yesterday....Today, the guy Irans richest billionaire who is partner of guy arrested in Turkey for oil for gold is now arrested in Iran......if these guys and the Turkish Govt have been ripping off the iranians there will be hell to pay.
There will be a domino effect on his victims and their victims. Conmen like that run in big money circles where there are lots of sharks and all of them think they are the slickest and the smartest (which is almost always their downfall).
This could be epic and seriously blow up Bambi’s deal with Iran.........serious naughty business abound here and the Turks are up in their eyeballs in it......Tehran apparently not very happy with Ankara at the moment, i can guess why now.
I work on cases involving very wealthy conmen pretty often particularly the type where they’re using shell companies to shift it around after they come to U.S. to borrow “our” money then ship it back overseas to guys that don’t have our best interests at heart. Let’s just say i discovered this years ago and alerted it to the powers that be how our own money is being used to financeterrorism. At first thy thought it was just a few isolated incidents and they didn’t seem to pay attention but I think they are now starting to finally get it.
Shell Companies were the rage during the tech bubble. No revs just pure hype on PRs, but it got sold to unsophisticated investors. Key is, watch the front runners barking buy, buy, buy & sell, sell, sell.
These con men get a free ride stealing people’s properties and consolidating the,, and ten, zap, the government takes it all under spurious circumstances in which the government profited itself in the past.
This season’s Homeland showed this going on with a Law Firm and US Banks and Iran....
I just know Iran, Al Qaida are laughing their heads off at how they are destroying America from the inside- then they have their people in high positions in our Government, Homeland Security...
Iran is a communist nation ruled by the top clerics.
Dems are taking notes and eyeballing the 3+Trillion in American savings/retirement accounts.
the Federal Employees, (and military) Thrift Service Plan was already raided way back in Clinton presidency. Of course they will do it; they already know how.
