U.S. prosecutors accuse Turkey's Halkbank of scheme to evade Iran sanctions

NEW YORK, Oct 15 (Reuters) - U.S. prosecutors on Tuesday charged Turkey’s Halkbank with taking part in a multibillion-dollar scheme to evade U.S. sanctions against Iran.

The charges against the majority state-owned bank mirror those against one of its former executives, Mehmet Hakan Atilla, who was found guilty and sentenced to prison after a trial in Manhattan federal court last year. (Reporting By Brendan Pierson; Editing by Sandra Maler)
