Cyprus Finance Minister: Uninsured Laiki Depositors Could Face 80% Haircut

SARRISCyprus΄s finance minister said Tuesday that large deposit holders at Cyprus Popular Bank PCL (CPB.CP), the island΄s second biggest lender, could face losses of as much as 80% on their deposits as the government moves to wind down its operations.
Speaking in a television interview with state broadcaster RIC, Michalis Sarris indicated that it could also take years before those depositors see any of their money returned.
“Realistically, very little will be returned,” Mr. Sarris said.

Asked if, like in other bank closures, it could take six to seven years before depositors get back there money, he said: “maybe yes. And the amount [returned], could be 20%. Certainly, for depositors above 100,000 euros it could be a very significant blow.”
His remarks come just hours after Cyprus΄s central bank governor estimated that the losses facing large depositors at rival Bank of Cyprus PCL (BOCY.CP), could reach as much as 40%.

  1. People talk about the dangers of corporate globalism, but globalism is too imprecise a word. The globalist system that governs the world today is in fact “Zionist-Globalism”, or “Zio-Globalism”. It’s a system run by a racist Jewish cabal.
