Ancaman levi 6.75% untuk pendeposit bank di Cyprus


Selepas Cyprus merancang melaksanakan levi 6.75 peratus pada pendeposit yang mempunyai simpanan sehingga 100,000 Euro dalam bank, harga saham sedunia menjunam jatuh.

Petikan berita dari Business Insider:
"Eurozone leaders and the IMF on Saturday announced an unprecedented levy on all deposits in Cypriot banks as the sting in the tail of a 10-billion-euro bailout for the near-bankrupt government in Nicosia.

Intended to apply to everyone from pensioners to Russian oligarchs alleged to have billions stashed away in what officials say is a bloated Cypriot banking sector, the "stability levy" immediately raised a flood of concerns among finance experts over a possible bank run in bigger eurozone economies, where fragile public finances are also under scrutiny.

Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem, after chairing some 10 hours of talks to strike the deal with counterparts including International Monetary Fund head Christine Lagarde and the European Central Bank's Mario Draghi, said the "upfront, one-off" tax is expected to raise 5.8 billion euros on top of the loans still to be finalised by eurozone parliaments.

Bagaimanapun, ketegangan itu reda sedikit setelah Zon Eropah (EU) bersetuju menarik balik levi deposit bank di negara itu.
