Six thousand on list of those who transferred money out in March

 

The Central Bank of Cyprus (CBC) yesterday handed lawmakers a list of 6,000 companies and individuals who withdrew money from Cyprus up to 15 days before a controversial Eurogroup decision to force losses on depositors as a condition for a €10 billion bailout.

However, the chairman of the House Ethics Committee, who was due to look into a list detailing transfers of more than €100,000 from the two major banks – Bank of Cyprus (BoC) and Laiki – said the list fell short of what he had requested.
