The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York is said to have prepared a second indictment for Turkey’s state-run bank Halkbank accused of violating sanction on Iran, columnist Cansu Çamlıbel reported in Hürriyet daily on Friday.

A New York jury jailed Mehmet Hakan Atilla, a deputy CEO of the bank, in January, for his role in the scheme, which allegedly involved bank transfers and falsified paperwork.

Halkbank is also being investigated by the U.S. Treasury over the same charges.
