In early 2012, Bank of Kunlun transferred hundreds of payments totaling roughly $100 million dollars from accounts it holds for designated Bank Tejarat.

In addition to these transfers, in early 2012 Bank of Kunlun made at least one payment for an affiliate of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps pursuant to a letter of credit opened by Bank Tejarat;
