BANKSTER DEATH PENALTY - Iran Sentences Four Bankers To Hang For $2.6 Billion Fraud - Meanwhile Jamie Dimon & Lloyd Blankfein Are Still Safe In America

Hang the bankers... ?  Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner, Rubin, Corzine, Dimon and Blankfein are safe for now, but perhaps if we moved Wall Street to downtown Tehran.

We have an entire class of people and financial corporations who do little more than use their money (via lobbying) and power to extract (e.g., legally steal) billions of dollars from both taxpayers and shareholders, and they are heralded as 'job creators' and 'captains of industry.'  When caught doing something that is actually illegal (Libor manipulation, for example), they blame rogue traders and call upon political connections with Eric Holder and Lanny Breuer via the Covington & Burling infested Department of Justice.

Scoundrels, every last one of them.

Meanwhile, those who steal from grocery stores generally go to jail.

It is not fair.  It is not just.  It is not right.  And it is why, according to a new Gallup Poll, 'Reducing Corruption in Government' has become the second most important issue to American voters, with a whopping 87% of all votes.

Now, onto Iran, where banksters get punished.


Here are the 2 sources for this story:

Iran's Judiciary Spokesman Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei:

  • Of 39 defendants, whose charges were heard, the court’s judge has sentenced four to death and two others to life imprisonment.  The remaining defendants received prison terms of 25 years, 20 years, 10 years, and less severe sentences.”

DUBAI, July 30 (Reuters) - An Iranian court has sentenced four people to death for a billion-dollar bankfraud that tainted the government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, state media reported on Monday.

Iranians, hit by sanctions and soaring inflation, were shocked by the scale of the $2.6 billion bank loan embezzlement that was exposed last year and by allegations it was carried out by people close to the political elite or with their assent.

Of the thirty-nine people tried for the fraud - the biggest in the Islamic Republic's history - four were sentenced to hang, the IRNA state news agency reported.

"According to the sentence that was issued, four of the defendants in this case were sentenced to death," prosecutor general Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei told IRNA.

Two people were sentenced to life and others received jail sentences of up to 25 years, Mohseni-Ejei said. In addition to jail time, some were sentenced to flogging, ordered to pay fines and banned from government jobs.

Mohseni-Ejei did not name the defendants and Iranian media have identified them only by their initials. State television broadcast parts of the trial but blurred out the faces of the accused.

The man described by Iranian media as the mastermind of the scheme, businessman Amir Mansoor Khosravi, is said to have forged letters of credit from Iran's Bank Saderat to fund dozens of companies and buy a state-owned steel factory.

Mahmoud Reza Khavari, the former head of Iran's biggest bank, state-owned Bank Melli, resigned over the affair and fled to Canada where records show he owns a $3 million home, Iranian and Canadian news agencies reported.

Even a counrty that has a surplus, even there they balme an economic hickup on the diabled once, because acording to THEIR sick perpectives, are some few thousands, of a population of 5 mill.
They are not, and will never be an economic failure, what ever money putt and or goiven to this kind of people, goes Back to the county/country by simple shopping and common paying bills, it not waist of money, the Bailouts where a failure of biblical proportins, thats an issue THEY dont talk about, because they to have lived on this "sosialism".
The notions must be cleared, before one uses it.

ANd dont forgett, americans, the sosial sec. was in surpluss, before it was stolen from you, have you forgotten it already, how convininet, huh.

Always have and always will.

I call Bull Sh*T on this article what say you? IMO no one is supposed to be above the law! I post it also to bring up another point which is fines are a joke to the banks they merely pass the penalty on like they are doing with the credit card swipe fees (thanks dirty dodd)

Why Big Banks Are Above the Law


Retailers, Not Consumers, Swipe Victory in Credit Card Fee Settlement

The "Freedom" to be manipulated by the Media and to be Slaves of the Bankers and The Fed...............Is that what you are referring to Sir?

AND HERE, IN AMERICA, Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner, Rubin, Corzine, Dimon and Blankfein are being courted by Congress, the Executiveand Judicial Branches of the U.S. Government setting the stage to economicall ENSLAVE ALL AMERICANS and future generations because of their greed, graft, fraud, theft, and manipulation of the American TRUST. Hang the bankers... ? Freeze their assets, foreclose on their homes, send their children back to public schools, let them shop at Walmart and cut coupons to get by. Thomas Jefferson was right,'Every once in awhile blood must be spilled to insure liberty." It will be either theirs or ours, but one thing is for sure God is watching.....................America is dying because Americans will not take the CROOKS to task. Maybe Iran has the right idea. They are hanging the guilty because of billions in losses. America may have lost over $20 trillion. Hang the bankers... !

No wonder the U.S. and Israel want to bomb them.

So you speak for the entire U.S. population as well as for the entire Israeli population. Furthermore, I gather from your remarks that you are in favor of billion dollar fraud.............?

The Persians are attempting to let us know what should have been done to the banker elite who have crippled America by giving the example of what is not only fair but also righteous !
It would make sense that the pawn of Israel would want to bomb Iran due to the extreme example the Iranian Justice System is making of their own Fraudulent Banker Elite by the 4 Death Penalties ,Life Sentences and Floggings they imposed upon these masters of manipulation who in America scoff laugh and are rewarded for their Lies and are catered to due to the Jews being the very people who invented and abused Usery to begin with !
When will we understand that Iran does not wish to wage war Iran wishes to make peace and not be held accountable to a peoples who invaded a fellow Arab State in 1945 through force and violence to take away the homes of Palestinians who did nothing except live in a country that was favorable to the Abrahamic Religions and were expelled and or made slaves or killed by the very European Jews who did to the Palestinians what the Nazis did to them and NOBODY GIVES and no Jew will ever pay a reparation to a Palestinian and or have a movie made about them by Spielberg !
When will America realize that Israel is pushing America into another war and that Iran is doing to the Banker Elite what we should have done to our own Banker Elite here ,Wake up America the new Redcoats run our banks and try to push us into another war in the middle east only this time there seem to be no Liberty or Rebels no Justice or Jury just us and them and their color is blood red or Greenback and they already won !
