Seyed Sajjad Shahidian, the founder and CEO of Iranian financial services company Payment24, was arrested & extradited to the US from the UK & charged with violating US sanctions, identity theft, money laundering, and fraud conspiracy.

#Iran #IranSanctions
Also charged were Payment24 and another Iranian named Vahid Vali, who was the COO of Payment24. Vali is still at large, though.
The main reason that Payment24 was set up was to help Iranian citizens conduct illegal financial transactions with US businesses & they even charged a fee to get around US sanctions.

Didn't Erdogan really go after Gulen because Gulen exposed the corruption/money-laundering, which, the HalkBank case corroborated? #IranSanctions

Anybody interested in #India's #Economy should take 30 minutes time out and listen to this interview. There is both sound, credible analysis of the problem AND an entirely logical policy prescription. #AltSarkar @PIB_Altsarkar @fek_le @Vidyut
thewire.in/video/watch-ce…
A quick summary:
1. Our present problems can be traced back directly to the stupid, stupid move on Nov 8 2016 when 86% of the means of settlement of dues was taken out. Damn that #Demonetisation. We in #AltSarkar have to acknowledge it even if its defenders do not.
2. India's problem is a demand side problem. People have neither the free disposable cash now nor the confidence in their future to take a loan to go out and buy stuff.
3. You don't deal with a demand drop off by propping up supply side factors. #AltSarkar believes in logic

I noticed many people believed that the exit of @HSBC & @UBS from Nigeria is because of the effectiveness of the ongoing war on corruption. It's not true, do not be deceived. Their exit from our country is not a good pointer to the confidence in our economy.

Here is why

Thread.
Since the collapse of the European empires, England, France, Germany, Spain & Portugal etc after the second world war due to their utter destruction, the empires started the to break up because the stress upon them is no longer bearable. Most overseas territories must be ceded.
The only standing power, with resources, military, and money is the U.S. Europe need to rebuild its infrastructure and institutions. So a meeting was convened at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire for a Monetary and Financial Conference. The U.S wanted to help Europe rebuild.

Contrary to public perception @SushmaSwaraj was not trolled for her role in the passport row. She was targeted for her opposition to US sanctions on India for not dumping Iranian oil. Trump has set a deadline for Oil War. Will Sushma Swaraj nudge?
gginews.in/the-nudging-of…
Sanctions are a way of weaponizing Dollar already pegged to Saudi Oil. @SushmaSwaraj refused to fight this Anglo-American war against Iran, Russia, China, Turkey for which she was trolled into silence. Now, James Mattis is here to oversee this compliance. gginews.in/the-nudging-of…
When Nikki Haley was sent to rein in @SushmaSwaraj, defying US pressure she retorted “We do not make our foreign policy under pressure from other countries. We believe in UN sanctions but not in US sanctions.” Will she be nudged by now James Mattis? gginews.in/the-nudging-of…
