US court upholds Turkish banker’s conviction in Iran case – WBNG (wbng.com)

NEW YORK (AP) — A federal appeals panel says a Turkish banker was properly convicted of helping Iran evade U.S. sanctions in a case that strained relations with Turkey. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan released its ruling Monday. It concluded that Mehmet Hakan Atilla received a fair trial after he was arrested in 2017 during a business trip to the United States. At the time, he was working for his employer, Turkey’s state-run Halkbank. Atilla has already served a sentence of two and a half years in prison and returned to Turkey.
