SOFIA Aug 15 Bulgaria's central bank is to
allow some banking activities to resume at Corporate Commercial
Bank (Corpbank) so borrowers can repay loans to the
country's fourth-largest lender.
"(Borrowers) are allowed payment transactions for the
purpose of repayment of loans to the bank," the central bank
said in a statement on Friday.
The bank was hit by a run on deposits in June that led to
Bulgaria's biggest banking crisis since the 1990s. Corpbank has
since remained shut pending an audit into its books, due to be
completed by October, and angry customers have demanded access
to their deposits.
