Statement of J&T BANKA regarding the investigation into the commission of a criminal offence in Turks and Caicos Islands

13. August 2014

The investigation into the commission of a criminal offence in the Turks and Caicos Islands against J&T was terminated already in 2012. On the basis of an agreement between the Governor of the Islands representing the British Crown and the Government of the Islands, Attorney General and J&T, mutual settlement had been reached, whereby J&T, including its representatives, had been cleared of all charges.

In the whole matter, J&T Banka had acted as a financial institution co-financing the construction of a resort on the islands. Given the failure of the project, as a result of which, among other things, the land had been returned to the government, J&T Banka had waived security interests arising out of the funding provided for the benefit of the government. Thereby, J&T considers the whole case and the investigation closed.

 

At present, questioning is being conducted by Czech authorities, which were asked by the British party to render assistance a few years ago. However, no prosecution has been launched and J&T has not been notified of any accusation. We have offered our assistance to Czech authorities and we believe that the questioning will end in the near future in the Czech Republic too.
