Iran exporting corruption – some of those arrested in Turkey are charged today with giving and taking $60m in bribes to bypass sanctions

Corruption probe zooms in on Reza Zarrab who allegedly bribed officials to transfer $10 billion to Iran using state-lender Halkbank.  As the ring leader in massive corruption dragnet in Turkey, Zarran kept tab on each and every installment he had made to government ministers.  In court,  Zarrab stated “I exported 30 tons of gold per month to Iran.”    The corruption scandal threatens Erdogan’s government,  bringing down senior members of the political establishment.
