TURKISH CORRUPTION AND BRIBERY CASE IN THE U.S.
This case is the most important case for Turkish government and Turkish president.
Corroption and bribery allegations were about four Turkish ministers, some bureaucrats and some businessmen in 2013.
This case was put into cold storage in Turkey but it has been on the court in the United States.
The main businessman named Reza Zarrab who is charged of these crimes was arested in the U.S. after he arrived in Florida with his wife.
His arrival in the U.S. was thought to be the result of a negotiation. It is claimed that he negotiated to become a confessor in return for a permission that will allow him to keep his assets outside Turkey and continue his commercial activities. If he becomes a confessor, the story will widen more and a new indictment will be written.
Reza Zarrab, a gold trader in Turkey with dual Turkish – Iranian citizenship may now be cooperating with U.S. authorities in search of a plea bargain deal.
U.S. federal Bureau of prisons website showed; Zarrab was released from the prison.
Where is he?
It is secret right now.
He might be sent to the federal detention center which is under the control of prosecutors and intelligence services.
Whereas, Turkish authorities are anxious about his pozition. If he became a confessor, it would be big trouble for some Turkish authorities.
Prosecutors charges Reza Zarrab to violate U.S. sanctions on Iran through Turkish banks.
