Insider trading scandal hits national bank

The governor of the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) Marián Jusko on Wednesday admitted that information was leaked from the NBS in advance of the publication of international trade figures, leading to insider trading.

"I'm interested in seeing who profited from this. I've still not managed to find out although it was probably a deal between a domestic and foreign bank," said Jusko.

The crown strengthened by 20 haliers (€0.005) on the basis of a trade that took place twenty minutes before foreign trade figures were announced by the Slovak Statistics Office on June 30.
