TBC Bank about Okuashvili’s Statement: We Plan to Take Legal Steps

TBC Bank will take legal steps in relation to statements made by businessman Zaza Okuashvili, because the mentioned statementს damage the bank’s reputation, the head of TBC Bank’s legal department, noted.

This is very sensitive issue for our bank as it refers to divulging information on the client’s transaction. This is a private information and a leakage of similar information damages our reputation. We must provide due services for our clients and respect the legislation.

Similar lies defame our reputation and we plan to take legal steps. Lawyers will make due reaction, the TBC Bank representative noted and refused as if the authorities had staged pressure on TBC Bank top management as part of the mentioned transaction.

„If there is money at a branch, it may be withdrawn simply and immediately, if there is no money at a branch, we need a certain period. In the mentioned case the Marjanishvili branch carried out the transaction and ensured quick services for the client. This was not enormous sum and the top management has not interfered.

We did not need assistance of National Bank of Georgia (NBG). There was enough money at the bank. We do not confirm information about pressure. This is fraud information”, TBC Bank representatives noted.
