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.

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.
