Erdogan: New York Trial US Conspiracy Against Turkey

Not Released

"Turkey has no plans against the United States, but it is clear that the USA has plans against us", Erdogan said, according to an Associated Press report.

Erdogan says the trial is a ploy to distract Turkey while Washington hatches plans to strengthen Syrian Kurdish groups Turkey considers to be terrorists. During cross-examination, Zarrab admitted that unlike the bank's manager Atilla never got bribes and met with Zarrab only a "handful" of times during the 4 years the bank was involved. Zarrab's lawyer, Robert Anello, insists that his client recognises the importance of telling the truth.

The executive has pleaded innocent and the bank has said all of its transactions complied with global regulations.

It is important to note that while Zarrab has confessed to the crime and Atilla is on trial, the real criminal here is the Iranian Regime.

Zarrab estimated that he made from $100 million to $150 million between 2010 and 2016 by carrying out various illegal schemes, including helping Iran evade US sanctions.

Finally…Amazon Prime Video app debuts on Apple TV
Previously, Apple TV owners relied on a wireless AirPlay connection to play Prime Video content on their Apple TV device. It was also reported that Amazon would once again start selling the Apple TV on its platform, which is yet to happen.

Some of those detained in Turkey are accused of sending documents to the United States to help with the case. The Iran sanctions "case has nothing to do with law, justice, or trade, it's an acrobatic spectacle", he said. The other seven, including several high-ranking Turkish officials, remain at large.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke Tuesday in Ankara, Turkey. Erdogan claimed that his political opponents were behind both the current U.S. case and the 2013 Turkish case and recently called on the USA to drop the case.

"This trial is an worldwide coup attempt, a process at the centre of which is FETO", he said, using the Turkish government's term for Gulen's network.

Last week the Istanbul prosecutor's office chose to seize the assets of Zarrab and those of his acquaintances as part of the investigation, Anadolu reported.
