The National Agency for Fiscal Administration (ANAF) has begun checks on two non-profitable banks operating in Romania, Prime Minister Mihai Tudose has said.
“ANAF has begun the checks on two of the banks to see how and what is happening. I tell you very sincerely, and I assume it, we will go all the way to the public and say: these banks had no profit, one year, two, three, four years, I do not know if it’s very ‘safe’ to keep your savings there. (…) Forgive me, it’s a bank, if it does not register profit, it has losses, doesn’t it risk bankruptcy?,” PM Mihai Tudose told Antena 3 TV.
Of the 36 banks operating in Romania, half run on profit and a half on losses, according to the prime minister.
