The press release published by Credit Europe Bank N.V. in response to the allegations is as follows;
''It has come to our attention that an individual, with whom Credit Europe Bank N.V. had a business relationship more than ten years ago, has made the bank the subject of a recent smear campaign. This is despite the fact that the courts of law in the Netherlands have on two instances ruled against this individual. There is no existing or past regulatory or criminal investigation launched against Credit Europe Bank N.V. with respect to these false claims, either in the Netherlands or elsewhere.
Credit Europe Bank N.V. has always performed its activities in full compliance with the applicable laws and regulations in the Netherlands, and we have absolutely no concerns on the legality or soundness of our business conduct.
Credit Europe Bank N.V. will duly invoke its legal rights in response to these false and malicious allegations.''
