Canada not cooperative on returning embezzler ‘Khavari’

Shahr-e Rey, Feb 10, IRNA – Spokesman for the Judiciary announced that Canada has not had any kind of cooperation with Iran to return big embezzler Mohammad Reza Khavari to the country.

Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejei told IRNA that Iran has received no news from the Canadian government about Khavari.

Acting as manager director of Bank Melli Iran four years ago, Khavari resigned and escaped from Iran to Canada on the pretext of neurotic problem.

The escape happened when he was accused of a big embezzlement worth 30,000 billion rials.

Announcement of that accusation was less than a month before banker’s escape.
