Kazakhstan-based Alliance Bank is going to make the misinformers reimburse the losses, caused by rumours about the bank's bankruptcy, Tengrinews reports citing the bank's press-service.

"The Alliance Bank is considering filing a lawsuit to claim a compensation of the financial and reputational damages, caused by the misleading information about bank's bankruptcy," head of the bank's PR-service Daulet Zhumadil said.

A few days ago Kazakhstan citizens, especially those residing in Astana and Almaty started receiving anonymous messages warning them that the large Kazakhstan banks - Alliance Bank, CenterCredit Bank and Kaspi Bank were at the verge of failing, and urging them to withdraw their deposits from these banks. The buzz sprouted panic and resulted in massive withdraws from the banks.

The Chairman of Board of Alliance Bank will announce the amount of the deposits rundown from the bank on February 26.

The Kapsi Bank has already announced that it lost 10% of its clients to the misinformation campaign. The withdraws from the bank totalled at $216 million.

The police has tracked down and arrested on of the sources of the rumours - Darkhan Sabdenov, a former employee of CenterCredit Bank. He is suspected for being involved in sparking the misleading buzz. But his motive is not clear. Darkhan Sabdenov is in custody and has confessed.

The Prosecutor’s Office of Almaty has initiated an administrative case against Sabdenov on Article 136-1 of the Administrative Offences Code of Kazakhstan - Damage to property via false pretences or abuse of trust.

Earlier, Kazakh lawyer Jokhar Utebekov said that banks wouldn't be able to bring the ones who were distributing misinformation about bankruptcy of the Kazakhstan banks to criminal or administrative liability, because Kazakhstan lacks the applicable legislation.

However, Alliance Bank, Kaspi Bank and CenterCredit Bank are working on initiating criminal or administrative cases against the offenders.
