Turkey's Halkbank shares jump after U.S. prosecutor in sanctions case steps down

ANKARA, June 22 (Reuters) - Shares in Turkish state lender Halkbank surged 8% on Monday after U.S. federal chief prosecutor Geoffrey Berman, who oversaw a court case against the bank, stepped down over the weekend.

U.S. prosecutors allege that from 2012 to 2016, Halkbank and its executives used money servicers and front companies in Iran, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates to evade U.S. sanctions on Iran. (Reporting by Ece Toksabay Editing by Dominic Evans)
