    Default Iran : how it deals with it's rogue bankers

    The Supreme Leader of Iran has upheld the death sentence for 4 bankers and that several other bankers have been sentenced to life imprisonment in a $2.6m fraud.

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's state prosecutor says the country's Supreme Court has upheld death sentences against four people linked to a $2.6 billion bank fraud described as the biggest financial swindle in Iran's history.

    Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehei says the four were convicted of being "corrupt on earth" for "disrupting" the country's economy. He says the court has ordered the verdict to be carried out but no date has been set.

    Ejehei is quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying that two banking officials have been sentenced to life in prison while 19 others, almost all of them senior government officials, were given prison terms ranging from 2 to 20 years. Their trial last year raised questions about corruption at senior levels in Iran's tightly controlled economy

    Ireland could do with similar legislation and sentencing policies.

    And we are still doffing our caps to the tossers who caused a 65 billion plus interest issue, our grandchildren will have to finishing paying!
    I would not punish our lads with the death penalty but they have caused many to commit suicide and destroyed the lives of many others!

    Superficially, the Iranian solution is appealling, however this is also a country that hangs homosexuals and flogs victims of rape...I could be wrong about the last one though..suffice it to say, I don't think the Iranian justice system is a model to follow.

    Probably not a great idea when your economy depends heavily on foreign investment, either.

    Don't forget that it is legal to stone women in Iran but illegal to pick the wrong stone. Too big to kill her in one go or too small to do no damage.
