WORLDWIDE LIST OF ARRESTED BANKERS

  1. 10/06/11 (HONG KONG) Deutsche Bank Asia, senior banker Yan Shen, 43, who headed the North Asia institutional clients group escaped a prison sentence Thursday after he was found in possession of a gun at Hong Kong’s international airport. Yan Shen, was discovered carrying the unlicensed pistol and ammunition during a search of his baggage in the departure lounge of Chek Lap Kok Airport. The offence carries a maximum jail sentence of 14 years, but Shen was spared jail after the court heard he suffered a personality disorder and liked to collect things. Sentencing him to 240 hours of community service and a fine of 50,000 Hong Kong dollars (6,400 US dollars), the judge said he did not accept Yan’s excuse that he was unaware it was illegal to possess firearms. However, the judge said he had decided not to jail Yan because prison might interfere wih treatment for his disorder.

  3. 11/01/11 (IRAN) Bank Melli, Mr. Khavari, a dual Iranian-Canadian citizen, left Iran in September as prosecutors there announced they wanted to question him in connection with a $2.6-billion embezzlement scandal that has led to the arrest of several bankers. Tehran also wants an international warrant for Mr. Khavari’s arrest. Canada has no extradition treaty with Iran. Mr. Khavari could be stripped of his Canadian citizenship. The banker’s continuing freedom and apparent wealth – he and his family own several Toronto properties – have angered Iranian diaspora groups. It’s unclear how he could become a Canadian citizen while working in Iran as an elite banker. Khavari is indicative of a much larger wave of people who have slipped into Canada. The Globe and Mail reported Monday that one of several brothers whose family business is at the heart of the Iranian embezzlement scandal moved to Montreal this past summer.

  12. 2/29/12 (SWITZERLAND) Hyposwiss Privatbank AG, Prosecutors in Switzerland say a man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing confidential customer data from a Swiss private bank. The Federal Prosecutor’s office in Bern says the former contractor of Hyposwiss Privatbank AG was arrested Feb. 16 and remains in custody. Prosecutors say a criminal investigation was launched Jan. 19 after the unidentified man approached a law firm and offered to sell the confidential data. They declined to provide further information. Swiss daily Tages-Anzeiger reported Wednesday that the data partly concerned the account of a wealthy Russian businessman. Recent cases of stolen Swiss bank data being bought by foreign tax authorities have added to pressure on Switzerland to give up its strict banking secrecy rules. NOTE: This arrest appears to be an attack on a whistleblower by Swiss authorities!
