«Information about clients of commercial banks is required for reference only,» the Chairman of the State Financial Intelligence Service of Kyrgyzstan Gulamzhan Anarbaev said at a press conference today.
According to him, the State Financial Intelligence Service considers publication of the letter to commercial banks illegal. The agency said that the request was sent only for reference. At the same time, the Financial Intelligence does not need data on the content of accounts and safe deposit boxes.
«After the publication of our letter in the media, the society and even some state bodies incorrectly interpreted our demand. We sent the letter to create a centralized register of bank accounts,» Gulamzhan Anarbaev explained.
