Zarrab was charged in a plot to help Iran avoid USA economic sanctions and flood financial institutions with $1 billion of oil revenue. Zarrab previously testified under questioning by a prosecutor that he worked with Halkbank from 2012 to 2016 to help Iran spend its oil and gas revenue overseas using fraudulent gold and food transactions.
Turkish authorities have detained 17 people linked to Zarrab in an investigation launched after he cooperated with US authorities and agreed to testify in the case. Zarrab said he used the guard's phone to speak with his wife, daughter and lawyer.
Mehmet Hakan Atilla, an executive at Turkey's state-owned Halkbank, is on trial in Manhattan federal court.

Zarrab testified that he never paid Atilla a bribe and that Atilla never asked him for money.
Zarrab said he worked with Halkbank from 2012 to 2016 to help Iran spend its oil and gas revenue overseas using fraudulent gold and food transactions. He said Atilla helped structure those transactions.

Zarrab estimated that he made from $100 million to $150 million between 2010 and 2016 by carrying out various illegal schemes, including helping Iran dodge United States sanctions with hundreds of millions of dollars. He admitted that he understated his revenues on tax returns in Turkey from 2002 to 2016 and procured prostitutes for other people in 2013.
