The Central Bank supported the increase in terms of exclusion of bankers from the banking business

Moscow. November 10. The CBR supports the extension of the timing of weaning bankers from the banking business, said the Chairman of the Central Bank Mikhail Sukhov.

According to the Central Bank, now in the “black base” of the bankers, temporarily do not have the right to manage banks, consists of 4 thousand 462. These persons are not able for several years to manage banks, to join their boards of Directors, as well as to purchase stakes in banks of more than 10% of the share capital.

Sukhov noted that these 4 thousand people from the “black base” form the “face” of Russian banking sector, “and tens of thousands of other professionals”.

“In minimal cases we take the decision to exclude a person from the “black base”, because the cases of innocence are extremely rare. I think that if the legislator will extend the period of cooling from banking activities, for example, from 5 to 10 years, we will support it. This cold period will help the person establish itself positively in other sphere”, – said the Chairman of the Central Bank at the conference ARB on Tuesday.

In his opinion, a possible lengthening of the period of weaning from the banking business can be an effective tool in combating fraud reporting.
