“The American judicial system is under the influence of FETO.The case of [Iranian-Turkish entrepreneur Reza Zarrab has political motives. If there are laws in your country, then you must have proof of his guilt,” he stressed.

The US authorities arrested Zarrab in Miami, Florida in March 2016 on charges of organizing illegal schemes to transfer money to the Iranian government, bypassing the sanctions imposed by Washington on Tehran. In early September, the US Department of Justice also indicted in absentia the former Minister of Economy of Turkey Zafer Caglayan, the former head of the Turkish state bank Suleiman Aslan and two of their accomplices “in collusion to use the financial system of the United States in order to carry out millions of dollars in favor of the government of Iran and other Iranian structures.
