A false claim of violating the U.S. sanctions to Iran destroying an amazing talent

Mahmoud Reza Banki (Persian: محمود رضا بانکی), an Iranian-American scientist and management consultant was - unjustly - arrested and charged with violating US sanctions against Iran by the United States Attorney.

Ultimately Mahmoud Reza Banki won his case on appeal - but he still lost everything he amazingly accomplished.

Another heavy price paid by an innocent victim of a flawed law system. It is utterly disturbing how carelessly and violently lives are shattered by scores of people that are accountable in such cases- from attorneys to judged to the jury - and base their massively impacting judgements on false or missing evidence.

Or - as in Mahmoud Reza Banki's case - accepting constructed diversions from the truth and established law. It is also a reminder of the vulnerability before a system that can crush anyone's existence while it claims to protect and uphold justice for all.
