ISTANBUL (Reuters) – The U.S. court that sentenced a Turkish banker to 32 months in prison over his part in a scheme to help Iran evade U.S. sanctions violated the law and the trial was political, Turkish government spokesman Bekir Bozdag said on Thursday.

After the U.S. judge’s ruling on Halkbank executive Mehmet Hakan Atilla late on Wednesday, Bozdag wrote on Twitter that no country had the right to judge Turkish institutions or impose punishments on Turkey.
