Eleven Iranian deputies filed a complaint against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Central Bank Governor Mahmoud Bahmani over a $2.6 billion embezzlement scandal in the country's seven banks, pan-Arab daily Al Hayat reported Tuesday.

The complaint reportedly urged Iran's Supreme Leader to "cut off the hands" of those involved in the crime, the largest such embezzlement scam to hit the country, Al Hayat said.

The announcement of the complaint came after Iranian authorities issued arrest warrants for 22 people of suspected involvement in the case, including businessman Amir Mansour Ayra, who has ties to the director of the Iranian's president's office, Al Hayat reported.
