“Azerbaijan, Baku, June 10 / Trend F.Milad /

Interpol has placed former head of Iran’s Bank Melli, Mahmoud Reza Khavari, on its Red Notice Wanted list, the Fars News agency quoted a top judiciary official as saying.

Nasser Seraj added that the Interpol has issued the verdict to prosecute Khavari.

Judiciary spokesman Gholam Hossein Mohseni-Ejei called on Interpol to arrest and hand over Mahmoud Reza Khavari, the former managing director of Bank Melli, who fled to Canada after the $2.6 billion financial fraud case was uncovered.

The embezzlement case started in 2007 by Amir Mansour Arya Investment Company, headed by Khosravi, and progressed in 2010 after some Iranian major banks, including Bank Saderat and Bank Melli, issued loans for the company.

Iranian officials say that the case involved the use of fraudulent documents to obtain credit for this investment company, one of the country’s top financial institutions. The company used them to purchase assets such as state-owned companies.”

Iranian Bank Melli retired chief may be placed on Interpol wanted list

October 25, 2011

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.”
