Last month the US Federal Reserve (Fed) requested that the state-run Ziraat Bankası provide a detailed audit revealing whether or not the bank had conducted illegal money transfers from firms blacklisted by the US to countries such as Iran and Sudan, in violation of US sanctions. The Fed reached an agreement with Ziraat on July 1 stipulating that the financial institution would issue such a report within 60 days.” (Today’s Zaman, “Ziraat Bankasi money laundering issue reaches Parliament agenda”, 8/7/14);
