  • [01] Ten BoC board members get Central Bank's approval, more info asked of another six

    Cyprus Central Bank Governor Panicos Demetriades said on Tuesday that ten of the new members of the Bank of Cyprus (BoC) Board of Directors have been approved while another six members have been asked to provide more information. In an interview with CNA, which will be published on Friday, Demetriades said that the process is expected to be complete within the next few days.

    At the same time, he asked for public debate on the matter to come to an end. It would be best for the banking system that any public discussion on the matter comes to an end, he said.

    According to Demetriades, the evaluation process was completed on Monday and on the basis of legal counsel a letter was sent to BoC containing the approval of ten members of the Board, adding that there wasn't enough information on the other members. He rejected criticism on a delay, noting that the process was completed in less than a week after the AGM of the bank, as well as that officials worked through the weekend.
