TEHRAN — Iran’s state media is reporting that a key player in the country’s biggest-ever banking scandal was executed here on Saturday.

The office of Tehran’s public prosecutor announced that Mahafari Amir-Khosravi, one of four co-conspirators given the death sentence in 2012 for their roles in embezzling the equivalent of $2.6 billion, was hanged inside Tehran’s Evin prison.

I ran hangs key figure in banking scandal

While i don't think the death penalty is justified per se, it would be nice to see some of our own bankers held accountable for their crimes.

Perhaps we can learn from Greenland and Iran.

Cheers!

I am like you when it comes to the death penalty being too much but it would sure send a message to others that might think they can get away with it like in the west . .. Here they get a promotion to another cushy job in order to rob and steel from others . a reply to: soulshn

Normally I would agree. Use capital punishment as little as possible.

But banking scandals really should be considered crimes against humanity. Certain systems enslave, and even the most basic banking scandals can ruin many people lives.

I can fully support capital punishment for those who commit crimes against humanity. Certain crimes are just to heinous to correct.

So, it depends on your view.

Personally, I think usury should become not only a criminal one, but a capital offence.

Ahhhhh I see!
Now I know why israeli terrorists wants to bring down Iran!
Iran is killing their bankers.
Sure it is only money some will say, but this same paper is directly tied to peoples dreams.
THEY ARE STEALING YOUR DREAMS!
The US should take a page from Iran's book here and hang our traitors, (bankers, politicians, cops, Etc.)
But the people who "make" the laws are just as guilty...
Good for Iran.

Maybe we can get the Iranian courts and prosecutors "on loan" to sort out our own problems in North America? It would possibly give governments some rational distancing from the outcomes ;-)

And what of those who orchestrate above the bankers? Soros? Should people like him be held accountable?

He's destroyed other countries using his tactics....and recently (too lazy to link), he's started his 'exit' here too.

Selling off all his banking shares in one go..

ACTUALLY!!!!
Seeing as how we in the US love to outsource so much, maybe we could outsource a few of out court cases to a foreign government?
Let's see how our "leaders" do in a court outside of the US.

IF they find so easy to steal ppls living hood, destroy countles lifes, finance their own business deals with ppls money etc, heck yeah, death penalty is in right place! Other parts of the world actually reward these kinda of bankers... They gather many nations money to save their banks/bankers, this is total corruption...

Iranians have been waiting for this to happen for couple of years,and we are very happy that justice was served (at least on this issue). Greedy corrupt people of any society from any class have to be held accountable for their crimes in the court of law and should be punished accordingly and pay the consequences of their actions...This is just a beginning,,there is way more to come.

What Soros did wasn't illegal. These guys embezzled money which is illegal. So what if he sold all his shares in one go there is no law saying he has to sell a few shares at a time. Soros just gave the banks a taste of their own medicine.

White collar crimes of this magnitude do deserve harsh penalties.How many lives has someone such as Bernard Madoff destroyed?Here these parasites get a couple of years in country club jail then return and open up their offshore account coffers like nothings happened.Kudos to Iran for recognizing the damage these slobs do.

That's a plan, take all the banksters, their puppet politicians, and their handlers, like Soros, the pair of Kochs and the higher ups and do a little special renditioning to Iran so they can all be tried and sentenced. Then they can send them to Syria or Egypt for follow through. A little costly on the tax payer dime up front, with all that "cattle class" travel and guards, but hey, think of all the tax dollars saved over the next ten years. Every country would be in the black instead of the red.

Dear buster,

Soros and the banks both, are operating very unlawfully.

Can you please tell us how destroying nation's, including ours, is constitutional? Using only the law. Otherwise, that is simply your opinion as to how he is acting. I do agree with giving the banks there own medicine so to speak. But, there are many lawful ways to do that.

Usury is unlawful in Islamic law. Hence the Western world's mad desire to foster hatred of that section of the world. Especially with the advent of the internet.

Make usury criminal again, and watch the world self heal.

Are you still buying the 5 minutes of hate media? Ask questions once in a while. It is refreshing and natural.

We are already ipso facto members of the International Criminal Court. Article 6 US Constitution, UN Charter, CHAPTER XIV The International Court of Justice, Articles 92-96.

Ipso Facto.
en.wikipedia.org...

You may want to look up the Rome Statute for the International Criminal Court.

www.preventgenocide.org...

We signed that by the way, but have not ratified it.

en.wikipedia.org...

It is already there to use. Unless there is another reason we should not try to prevent genocide, and withdraw from that treaty. Frankly, I want to know why that it has not yet been ratified. Is there a reason for delay? I sure hope not. :-)

Prove it. If it's illegal then why wasn't all the bankers and wall street fraudsters arrested?

Because when it comes to finance laws we let the bankers write them. They have been doing this ever since we let them start the Federal Reserve.

These guys were charged with embezzlement not usury. Did you even bother to read the article?

No but it sure sounds like you have.

Once again, have to agree with Buster on this. Soros hasn't done anything illegal. Unethical sure, he's an evil horrid man. But greedy leaders of many countries think George Soros is going to help them get rich in the scheme of things. When it doesn't happen and they are destitute and treated like a drunk uncle, they have themselves partly to blame. Ask yourself why so many of these countries just lay down and let Soros destroy their economy. If he had done something illegal, he would certainly be charged by now from at least one of the countries he "helped".

But on topic, it does seem extreme to kill someone over money, even lots of. There should be some way to recoup some or all of the money and return it to the victims in addition to life imprisonment. I was happy finding out Madoff will rot in jail. But unhappy that funds weren't ripped from his coffers and returned to the rightful owners nor the rest of his familial cohorts arrested and jailed as well.

Sigh, buster, we are all on the same team. Heinous actions are being taken by everyone right now, including those involved in crony corporatism.

I feel horrible for our military. Talk about being stuck in the middle. They probably have there own charges now as well. Frightened, not to say a word. This whole situation is very sad. The VA scandal is certainly purposefully caused.

I digress.

www.change.org... during-ww2.

There are allegations that must be heard against Mr Soros. Due process, is a fundamental human right, gift, etc. Human rights are what our country is supposed to stand for. Now, it is just ignore that? For money? Ugh.

Look at the law. What are the supreme laws of the land? It certainly is not all in the bill of rights.

Illegal under statutory law? Maybe not. What about constitutional law? They are not the same. Read a bit. Then reconsider your positions. I certainly did.
