CBY warns banks against failing to submit financials or move to Aden
The Central Bank of Yemen has warned commercial and Islamic banks of failing to submit their financial statements or move headquarters from Houthi militants-controlled Sana'a to the interim capital Aden.
The warning came in a meeting chaired by the CBY's deputy governor Shakib Alhobeishi in the temporary capital Aden on Thursday.
The CBY warned the said banks they would bear consequences for putting them on the non-compliant banks list that will be circulated to all local and international financial institutions and organizations of concern.
The CBY demanded the banks to submit their financial statements within 15 days.
It ordered all commercial and Islamic banks to promptly move head offices to Aden where the CBY operates to allow for an easy verification and auditing of their dealings.
The CBY called on all commercial companies and vendors to carry out no financial or banking transactions including opening letters of credit or money transfers with the banks prone to be listed as non-compliant. The CBY said it won't bear any responsibilities for any damages resulting from dealing with non-compliant banks.
It affirmed that it would cash the foreign bank accounts of only the compliant banks to cover their letters of credits and import finance remittances.
