Illegal foreign exchange transactions: BCT says it went to court

The Central Bank of Tunisia said Monday in a statement “that having been aware, in January 2018, of some illegal operations initiated by two of its employees, it immediately brought the case to competent judicial authorities, by providing all elements available to it and initiating the appropriate legal proceedings.

Reacting to last week’s report about illegal foreign exchange operations at the BCT, the Central Bank wishes to clarify that the referral of this case to the judicial authorities was carried out

at “the referral to the judicial authorities of this case was carried out on its own and spontaneously, out of its continued commitment as a national institution and the commitment of all its executives to defending the general interest, abiding by the law and complying with all obligations to combat all forms of crime.

Spokesman for the Tunis First Instance Court SofiAne Selliti had told TAP on February 10 the Investigating Judge of the Judicial, Economic and Financial Division has issued two detention warrants against two officials of the Central Bank of Tunisia (BCT) and kept three others at liberty, for participation in a cartel for corruption and embezzlement, abuse of authority for obtaining benefits and also money-laundering crimes.

Selliti also said that another suspect in the case not belonging to the Central Bank is still wanted, adding that the case was transferred to the Public Prosecutor’s Office and that investigations are under way to clarify the case.
