“Banks not cooperating with foreign employees”

Parliamentary Secretary Silvio Schembri said that Maltese banks are not cooperating with foreign employees to open bank accounts.

Leader of the Opposition Adrian Delia asked Schembri a supplementary question, who responded that foreign workers especially employees in gaming are finding it difficult to open accounts for their pay.

He said that this is not acceptable because it goes against a number of European Union directives and the Government should not be taking the law in its hands.
