Tehran - A Tehran court has sentenced to death four people convicted in Iran's biggest-ever banking scandal, the national chief prosecutor said on Monday, according to the official news agency IRNA.

The sentences came at the end of a trial of 39 suspects that started in February. The magnitude of the scandal was estimated last year at $2.6bn.

"According to the verdict, four people were sentenced to death," chief prosecutor Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeie was quoted as saying.

      Have you ever gone into the reason Mr. Mandela and his cohorts were sent to Robben Island? Even the thick apartheid idiots were not as unfeeling as you. That makes more rascist than they.

      By the way I do not support what this bunch of thugs got up to. Our courts are doing a good enough job. It is the behaviour of correctional services that I take exeption to.

    Now that is exactly how we should deal with our own greedy, unscrupulous bankers.

    How the #$ can you be smart enough to steal $2bn and stupid enough not to get out in time? How about stealing $ 100m and moving to Switzerland?

    Can't wait for our own SA banks to be exposed as well. Bunch of scumbags.
