Trend News Agency on October 25, 2011 released the following:

“Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 25 / Trend T.Konyayeva/

If retired chief of Bank Melli Mahmoudrza Khavari refuses to return to Iran, he will be placed on Interpol wanted list, MEHR quoted Iran’s Prosecutor General Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei as saying on Tuesday.

On Sept. 28, Khavari sent a resignation letter to Minister of Economy and Finance Shamseddin Hosseini to beg pardon from Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Iranian people for Bank Melli’s involvement in the recent a $2.8 billion fraud scandal, which is described as Iran’s biggest case of embezzlement ever.

Hosseini accepted his resignation.

Shortly after, Former Managing Director of Iran’s Bank Saderat Mohammad Jahromi said Khavari escaped to Canada.

However, later Bank Melli’s spokesman Hossein Dashdi declined the allegations saying Khavari had left Iran for business affairs.

Mohseni-Ejei noted that Khavari should be himself interested in returning back to Iran, otherwise he will be regarded as a major suspect and would have to stand all charges for the fraud case.”
