Turkey's Foreign Ministry on Thursday blasted a court ruling by a U.S. jury who found a Turkish banker guilty on five charges related to conspiracy and bank fraud.

Axar.az reports citing AA.

The ruling in the Hakan Atilla case is an "unprecedented" intervention in Turkey’s internal affairs, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The ministry said Turkey expected the decision on the Turkish banker to be corrected, describing the verdict as a "judicial shame".

The verdict by a panel of six men and six women against Mehmet Hakan Atilla, 47, the former deputy chief executive officer of Turkey’s Halkbank, was reached after more than three weeks of testimony and four days of deliberation.

The guilty counts include violating U.S. sanctions against Iran, crimes to deceive the U.S. and defrauding U.S. banks.
