Kazakhstan National Bank has suspended the license of Kazakhstan-based BTA Bank for currency exchange services involving cash, Tengrinews reports citing the National Bank’s Committee for Financial Market Supervision.
A representative of Kazakhstan National Bank explained that the license was suspended due to repeated violations of the country’s legislation on counteraction to laundering illicitly obtained income and interaction to financing of terrorism.
In August 2013 the National Bank of Kazakhstan suspended licenses of several other Kazakhstan-based banks for bank transactions and other operations; Eurasian, Halyk and Citibank Kazakhstan were among them.
