BANK OF CYPRUS
The Bank of Cyprus filed a claim for foreclosure of immovable property of a Russian company, pledged to secure the repayment of a loan issued to a company registered in Cyprus. The value of the disputed assets was estimated at about 18 million US dollars. The case was complicated by the circumstances of the financial crisis which broke out in Cyprus in March 2013, and by the cession by one of the bank's Russian clients to the borrower of his claims against the bank under the bank deposit agreement, and the involvement in the relationship between the bank and the assignor of a trustee with whom the assignor had signed a trust agreement governed by the British Virgin Islands trust law. The bank was trying to prove that the assignment was made by an unauthorized person, it could not have been made, as by the anti-crisis legislation of Cyprus in March-April 2013 most of the clients' money deposited in the accounts had been converted into bank shares.
