Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 27 /Trend T.Konyayeva, T.Jafarov/
Iranian Bank Melli's spokesman Hossein Dashdi rejected the recent media reports about the retirement of the bank's Managing Director Mahmoudrza Khavari, ILNA reported.
Dashdi regarded this news as "nothing else but rumors."
Earlier, IRNA reported with reference to an anonymous source about Khavari's retirement, which Minister of Economy and Finance Shamseddin Hosseini reportedly accepted. His resignation was reported to be related to the last corruption case.
Meanwhile, the governmental officials have not confirmed Khavari's retirement yet, but did not deny the reports even.
Despite Dashdi's rejections, several Iranian news agencies reported about Khavari's retirement.
Last week, 19 suspects have been arrested over Bank Saderat's $2.8 bln corruption case.
Bank Saderat is one of Iran's major banks. It contains 3,300 active branches and a share capital of $1.6 billion.
Several Iranian news agencies reported they expect some Iranian banks' top managers to retire because of the last corruption scandal.
