Kazakh Central Bank Studying BTA Forged Signatures Allegation

Kazakhstan’s central bank said it is studying allegations by a senior BTA Bank executive that his signatures were forged last year to backdate documents before the lender was forced into its second debt restructuring.

“Some steps will certainly be taken,” central bank Chairman Grigori Marchenko told reporters today in Almaty. “But all these things must be looked into and proved.” The regulator’s financial-oversight committee is carrying out the probe.
