Ivanov: the Central Bank supports the idea of a ban on profession for bankers convicted in crimes


MOSCOW, January 26. The Central Bank was in favour of a ban on the profession for bankers found guilty of financial crimes. This was reported to journalists by the head of the Kremlin administration Sergei Ivanov after the meeting of the presidential Council for countering corruption.

“We talked with Elvira Nabiullina (Nabiullina, head of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation), it is in principle supported this idea, tell you a little secret,” he said.

Ivanov explained that the ban for bankers-criminals to work again in this field “at least ten years” stems from the fact that some of them after the closing for breaches of one Bank immediately open the second. “I strongly support the line of the Central Bank in clearing this sector, – stressed Ivanov. – I am convinced that not every institution on the pediment of which is written the word “Bank” is”.

The head of the Kremlin administration noted that the introduction of such a ban need to pass a law that does not violate the constitutional rights of citizens and would allow the banking sector to improve health more effectively than now.
