Even Iran Knows How To Fix The Corrupt Banker Problem

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Having watched Tim Geithner's disgusting defense of the tax-payer-backed re-inflation of a corrupt and knowingly devastating banking system on Jon Stewart's Daily Show, and watching the US fine (no jail time for anyone) a Swiss bank which admits its guilt over billions of fraud yet allow them to remain a prime dealer of US Treasuries; we thought the following story from a '3rd world banking system' would open a few eyes in the US this weekend as 'we remember'. As AP reports, a billionaire businessman at the heart of a $2.6 billion state bank scam in Iran, the largest fraud case since the country's 1979 Islamic Revolution, was executed Saturday, state television reported.

 

As AP reports,

A billionaire businessman at the heart of a $2.6 billion state bank scam in Iran, the largest fraud case since the country's 1979 Islamic Revolution, was executed Saturday, state television reported.

 

Authorities put Mahafarid Amir Khosravi, also known as Amir Mansour Aria, to death at Evin prison, just north of the capital, Tehran, the TV reported. The report said the execution came after Iran's Supreme Court upheld his death sentence.

 

Khosravi's lawyer, Gholam Ali Riahi, was quoted by news website khabaronline.ir as saying that the death sentence was carried out without him being given any notice. Death sentences in Iran are usually carried out by hanging.

 

"I had not been informed about the execution of my client," Riahi said. "All the assets of my client are at the disposal of the prosecutor's office."

 

State officials did not immediately comment on Riahi's claim.

 

The fraud involved using forged documents to get credit at one of Iran's top financial institutions, Bank Saderat, to purchase assets including state-owned companies like major steel producer Khuzestan Steel Co.

 

Khosravi's business empire included more than 35 companies from mineral water production to a football club and meat imports from Brazil. According to Iranian media reports, the bank fraud began in 2007.

 

A total of 39 defendants were convicted in the case. Four received death sentences, two got life sentences and the rest received sentences of up to 25 years in prison.

 

The trials raised questions about corruption at senior levels in Iran's tightly controlled economy during the administration of former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

 

Mahmoud Reza Khavari, a former head of Bank Melli, another major Iranian bank, escaped to Canada in 2011 after he resigned over the case. He faces charges over the case in Iran and remains on the Islamic Republic's wanted list. Khavari previously admitted that his bank partially was involved in the fraud, but has maintained his innocence.

What happens in American when the stock 'market' falls? When it becomes clear that all this money-printing has done nothing 'real'... and the middle-class finally realizes what the central planners are up to...? For sure, until then, no billionaires are going to jail, let alone being executed... in America - the land of the consequence-free...

And I hope you and other ZHs are.  This is a regime that could be your own one day. Not to defend bankers or corruption, but we (you) face a future with a government that has a monopoly on legalized terror and armed force. Now the government controls the assets. Who's to say your property won't be confiscated for the good of society one day (Eminant Domain anyone)?

I see so much trash talk about bankers and oligarchs. That is to easy. It is the government that profits, partners and creates these situations.

I am quite shocked that no murder charges have been filed against the Execs in the know at GM.  All they got was a congressional BS hearing lol.

The lack of prosecutions in this country of criminal behavior by large corporations is stunning to say the least.

"Justice" can be had in the US.  You have to be in the right district, and be willing to fight tooth and nail for it, but it can still be had.  And by fight tooth and nail, in an instance when you are accused, you have to have a pretty damned good idea of how the system works, and you have to be willing to do the equivalent of not swerving in a game of chicken.  One thing that a crooked or lazy DA hates to hear when they have overcharged a person (i.e. 7 felonies when the probable cause supports an arrest for 1 misdemeanor, but not really, but some cop decided it did, and he has an IQ of 70 and the mentality of a baboon) and are angling for a plea bargain is "trial, motherfuckers."  There are a lot of instances where cops don't do a real investigation these days.  A lot of the time, they'll make a snap judgement, and the DA will back their play by overcharging the person and then using the threat of years or decades to get the person to plea down to a minor charge.  WTF are you going to do if they may or may not have the evidence to convict you of a crime that you could spend 6 months in jail for, but they're coming at you full bore claiming that you can be put away for decades?

Been there, done that. Many times it's a load of BS they throw at you. They are lazy bullies and just want you to give in. 

I went to trial and got acquited. There wasn't a shred of evidence against me. NOTHING BUT AN ACCUSATION. But the crap they threw at me before trial was beyond belief. 

 

It's become a terrible system. If you are convicted at trial, they will throw the book at you, because you actually forced them to work. American Justice is dead. For now.

You forgot the biggest thing you need to fight for justice. MONEY. I know a guy who took a plea bargain to avoid doing time (but still has a conviction that limits his employment options for life). He had a good chance of being found Not Guilty but couldn't risk the possibility that the overcharge would triumph in court (with a few years inside) and he couldn't afford the $100,000 cash up front to pay for a proper legal defence.

An assassination market or market for assassinations is a prediction market where any party can place a bet (using anonymous electronic money, and pseudonymous remailers) on the date of death of a given individual, and collect a payoff if they "guess" the date accurately. This would incentivise assassination of individuals because the assassin, knowing when the action would take place, could profit by making an accurate bet on the time of the subject's death. Because the payoff is for knowing the date rather than performing the action of the assassin, it is substantially more difficult to assign criminal liability for the assassination.

Sadly, yes they are. I, disgustingly, worked for a bank for a couple years before deciding to rob them and the drive from the higher ups is ALWAYS more loans and more customers to bilk money out of. They try to rationalize that they're providing a service when all they are doing is charging 18% interest on money created out f thin air. Its the same defense as the nuremberg trials, "I was only following orders". Bank tellers would make great FEMA camp guards.

Sorry for the late post, takes me awhile to go through comments, but having read a number of yours, you surely won't defend any banker no matter how low on the totem pole. That's like defending soldiers who only signed up to get out of poverty, but will not question for a second taking the life  of another human being just because they're told to. They are both cogs in the same corrupt system.

"Convicted"?! LOL Like Corzine?!

Going to take years for them to be arrested, then years to come to trial, then years exhausting the appeals process, then let off due to "health" issues.

The problem is that in the west, the grand scam of financialization involves too many people to just execute. In Australia finance and real estate bubbles now form the basis of everything, and "academics" seriously see no problem in predicting even more wonderful "growth" in these industries. Our entire societies are scams, all financial promises are lies, we have beggared our unborn. So what do we do, seppuku? Nah just deny it all

>>>Our entire societies are scams...

Quoted for truth. 

Even corrupt, deteriorating societies have a considerable number of basically decent people, but at this point in "the West", such people are allowed nowhere near the levers of power.

Just thank God that America still finds it's greatest strength in Diversity.

always newsworthy bullshit, especially when the

maybe a superior system of fraud compared to the

resulting from complete innocence and honesty?

yes, until they got bribed and di not resist. we have to live with this. so long the money rules, we can expect a corruption in our society.

I do not want to say, that the best world woth of living was the stone age, there are other models, which would eliminate money and organize society in a bit different way, as we know it today.

Sentence one senior US banker to an arse raping prison for 10 years.... then there would be a quick decline in corrupt bankers.

Banksters are true cowards....a little arse raping will send them all running...trying to sell out their local bought politician.

 

So long as they can hide behind bought paid for corrupt politicians, presidents and regulators they will never cease their corruption and evil plans.

well there might be much more behind, then a fradulent moeny changer.

the country is rulled by elitists and they are, exaclty like in US, or elswhere, after the money. that they use islamic fundaments to organize the society, is a different leaf of paper.

so they let this guy and his companions make some mistakes and now seized his/their property. one oligarch lost against other oligarchs.

who belives in Schneewitchen? he believes in a clean transit of power without stealing the elections and he belives also in the war against the teror.

something, like to belive, that US sponsoroed some cakes /through Nudelman-Kagan/ in Kiev and has otherwise nothing to do with the coup'd etat in Kiev.

Hello everyone.

I am an Iranian (persian) and let you know the only reason that Mr. Amirkhosravi was executed was possible threats which may cause some problem for government and higher than that, I mean The Leader (Ayatollah Khamenei).So never cross in your mind that the goverment in Iran killed him because of fraud. 5 years ago, Mr. Amirkhosravi was one of the successful entrepreneur and a manager of more than 10 companies which most of them were flourishin and now he is a .... !!!! 

This kind of persons with high level of prestige and fame and also money has influential and confidential information that if revealed, caused many problem for government and you know the simplest way of getting rid of all threats.
