GCB Fraud Case: More Arrested

Further to our response to the media comments on 7th January, 2014 captioned �GCB responds to media publication� we would like to update our numerous customers and the general public that we have made good progress with intelligence gathering. This has led to further arrests of some persons (including customers) suspected to be part of a syndicate. Also some staff are being invited by Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) to assist in the investigations by virtue of their roles/job functions in the Bank. We assure the general public that GCB remains vigilant in its monitoring and controls to enable the early detection of such fraudulent activities as demonstrated in this case. We would again like to thank all our whistleblowers and informants for reporting this incident and for their continued collaboration with the Bank and law enforcement agencies throughout this investigation. ISSUED BY MANAGEMENT OF GCB.
