Bank of Uganda Lawyers Leak Crane Bank Top Depositors’ Secrets

Bank of Uganda (BoU) lawyers; AF Mpanga and MAAKS Advocates have leaked the client list of former Crane Bank account holders.

The list was submitted to the Commercial Court as evidence in the Crane bank saga and ongoing court battle between Bank of Uganda (Crane Bank under receivership) and Sudhir Ruparelia, the founder of the defunct bank over its collapse.

BoU early this year sold Crane Bank to dfcu Bank.

Sources indicate that leaking secrets of depositors is contrary to common procedure and a breach of mutual trust.

Some clients of former Crane Bank are threatening to also sue BOU and its lawyers for this anomaly.

“This also puts the future of commercial banking at risk as it scares away both current and future bankers,” a source said of the impact this leakage could cause to the banking sector.  The case is up for its next hearing on November 14, 2017.
