List Released With 132 Names Who Pulled Cyprus Deposits Ahead Of "Confiscation Day"

Tyler Durden's picture


With every passing day, it becomes clearer and clearer the Cyprus deposit confiscation "news" was the most unsurprising outcome for the nation's financial system and was known by virtually everyone on the ground days and weeks in advance: first it was disclosed that Russians had been pulling their  money, then it was suggested the president himself had made sure some €21 million of his family's money was parked safely in London, then we showed a massive surge in Cyprus deposit outflows in February, and now the latest news is that a list of 132 companies and individuals has emerged who withdrew their €-denominated deposits in the two weeks from March 1 to March 15, among which the previously noted company Loutsios & Sons which is alleged to have ties with the current Cypriot president Anastasiadis.

From Sigma:

Money transfers made within 15 days, namely from 1 until March 15. On Friday, March 15, had met the Eurogroup, which officially decided to impose a tax on deposits by companies and individuals in all financial institutions in Cyprus.


These 132 companies and individuals have withdrawn all deposits in euros, dollars and rubles, which were transferred to other banks outside Cyprus.


The disclosure of the list, which shows that the outflow of deposits from local banks other financial institutions outside Cyprus became massively raises suspicion that some had inside information about the decisions taken by the other 16 eurozone countries in exchange for financing deficits of the economy.


In listings, and the company is Loutsios & Sons Ltd, which carried 21 million deposit in a UK bank, while the owner of the company is alleged to have family ties with the President of the Republic, Nikos Anastasiadis.


The first column are names of companies and individuals in the second record of the amounts withdrawn in the third column refers to the amount withdrawn in the same currency, the currency in the fourth and the fifth and last column refers to the date of transfer.

So, ironically enough, in answer to our question from last week, "So Who Knew", the answer appears to be everyone.

Of the 132 names can anyone tell us how many of them are government officials, bankers or the cronies who pay them the big bucks?  (my guess is that it would be 132).

I'm going to go out on a limb here and predict that not a single one of those 132 names is a Bangladeshi (even though Bangladesh is the 8th largest country with the 6th largest city (by population) in the world.

It's not simple demographics by % of population; it's where those people live. Like Brittons, Jews live all over the world; especially in nearby (ahem... Cyprus) countries.

I'll bet that a disproportionate bunch of those names are British citizens (even though UK is 22nd on the population list.

Nice try, troll...

I'll agree with you 100%... There are ZERO 'Bangladeshi's' on that list [or associated with that list]... Now ~ what was your Harvard style debate point about again?...


While we're at it... "Sharia Law" does not allow for USURY... So let's exclude Muslims... Hindi's or Buddhists... I'm not sure about... But, population wise... Between Muslims, Hindis, & Buddhists, you'd have a great proportion of that list...

Why you DON'T, would completely escape my intellect... [based on your 'Bangladeshi' argument]...

I'll admit it, if I was one of these people/companies and I saw what was in the pipeline... dine and dash, no problem. But I must also acknowledge there are consequences to my actions. If I was advised by someone I trusted, who had a guy, that knew a guy, that played squash with a guy the spoke Dutch/German, I would pull the trigger. But if I had provable inside info, I would have to weigh my decision. Of course, that would make me a bankster, thus immune. Still pull the trigger and lawyer up.

what if you're the Prime Minister and you know that there is no way this will remain secret. have you violated an (albeit unwritten) trust between yourself and the voter? obviously the people transferring the money know who you are. do you then go back to your home country and say "vote for me...i've got this thing figured out now!"?

@MDB, I will cop to the very human motivation of (capital) preservation.

Also the very human emotion of righteous indignation at inequity and corruption.

So the solution is very simple.

I would move the money.

Then I'd shoot the person who (criminally) passed me the word that the haircut was coming.

Hypocritical, but lucrative and satisfying.

 Its not like the Canadian government would pass a bail-in law, right?

page 145

"The Government proposes to implement a "bail-in" regime for systemically important banks. This regime will be designed to ensure that,in the unlikely event that a systemically important bank depletes its capital, the bank can be recapitalized and returned to viability through the very rapid conversion of certain bank liabilities into regulatory capital."

So by hanging the people that managed to keep their own money, you somehow prevent little guy from getting robbed.  The only thing the people that saved their money are guilty of is not telling the little guy that the thieves were coming.

No, you evidently didn't understand my point or that of other posters above.
Hanging those corrupt who knew beforehand what was transpiring -and that means government officials and their kleptocrat buddies- is what we mean.
Those who had nothing to do with this theft but managed to pull their hard earned money based on an educated guess of the turn of events that was about to crash onto the cypriots, should have no fear from the lynch mob.

So yes, hanging the corrupt people who conspired to confiscate the wealth of others will prevent little guys elsewhere from being robbed, as the EU kleptocrats will think twice before trying to pull a similar stunt in the next domino.

I'm pretty sure those innocent who did pull their money out did in fact tell others of the impending catastrophe, but as always, their advice fell on deaf ears and deer staring at headlights, just as I've found out when trying to educate people about monetary rocket science.

Dear Ahmeexnal, no one remembers how to make a hangman's noose anymore, much less have the cajonies to actually get up and go down to do it. Most of the worlds people have been whipped into a passive lazy lacktoast cream-puff society that is to drugged out and in a place of fear to do anything to prevent the out-right theft of their savings. Take the Cyprus experiment for example. Operation cream-puff is proceeding according to plan sheding excellent results. You can hear them from here outside the slaughter house...listen...baahhhhhhhh.

My apologies - that should have said grown ups (plural) - should have edited it. But anyhoo...

I don't really care about your Jewish beliefs one way or another. I'm simply annoyed you have distracted this forum from other concerns of more relevance.

Who are the companies, who do they track back to in Cyrus/London/Moscow/Greece, who knew what when, what politician did what when? That's the story.

But, I guess it doesn't really matter.

I don't follow all your posts/arguments, so I can't really tell which side of the Jew conspiracy you are on here. If you're saying statisically speaking there are 131.68 entities on the list that are not Jew related... okay, fine... guess that's relevant to you somehow. We can dig into your methodology if you want... get down to the nuts and bolts of statistical analysis and play with the law of large numbers. But that's ultimately irrelevant to me. I've posted my questions of concern.

And yes, I am speaking 'Fatherly' because I want to put on the big-boy pants and figure out what's going on, besides distracting people with ignorance.

I think most people on ZH are jealous that the jewish people are just smarter than your average american, but then again who isn't now in days....

While ya'll are day trading a couple of thousand dollars the largest quant and prop firms were recruiting heavily for the up-coming summer season and paying interns 10-15'g a month.

You are also implying that because you are getting your PhD in mathematics that you (and other PhDs) somehow  have an advantage in trading when you couldn't be further from the truth. I worked for one of the biggest and oldest CTAs in the world for 6 years. Brilliant mathmeticians we had, more quant models than you could dream of - they all worked at one point or another until they don't. To further illustrate your lack for common knowledge while getting your part time PhD the 'Quants' only have so much data to analyze and process and most of that data is a reflection of 100 years of Federal Reserve manipulation so when the 100 year flood happens every 5 years as it did in 2008 and will soon bestow itself upon us again, the models fail - actually they explode. And another thing you won't learn about quants and their models - they have horrendous risk control. But go ahead and get that PhD, I'm sure its a good trade.

Not only does she have Chinese and New Zealand citizenship, they own some massive penthouses in Canda. I remember when I first met him at their upper west side condo, I thought he was a mobster wearing an entirely white suit down to the white gucci loafers. It was baller.



Also I'm not looking to become a trader, yuck!! I just like math, it is the purest form of art.

So you are a gay nigger that attends an Ivy League school and you hate the "white man." You are materialistic (gold chains, gucci, penthouses) and an aspiring mathmatics "artist." You've got a lot going for you. I'm sure you're very important.

" I think less than 2% of white people can handle the math "  


I went to school with a russian jew in high school in the 70's.   He never showed up for math class and one day I asked him why.   He said  " I did this math in grade 8."  

I think you have the cause and effect wrong.

Newton, Leibniz, Green and Gauss, Poincare and Euler...might be only 2%, but heck of a job, no?

Whatever their ethnicity, I'm glad I was able to live in a world where they came before me, and study the genius that materialized in their minds.

Having done my share of math at one of "those" universities---and having never achieved less than the highest grade in any class all four years no matter the class' ethnic make-up (I do qualify as "white")---you would be more correct saying that no more than 2% of all people could handle the math.  Lots of "your" people, no matter what they are, bombed out of some of the upper level classes.

Ah Francis, thank you sir for reminding us of the view from the bottom. Always puts my mind at ease you're still down there nipping at ythe ankles of your superiors.

You are using 1.32 as an average distribution of the population. In this case, as in most, the number would be higher because Jews are disproportionately wealthy, because they are more intelligent, creative, and productive than most of the other tribes. I'm sure there is a statistical carcity of Africans on the list for similar reasons.

Alas, we are not all created equal, as it turns out. Jews are just better than you. Maybe learn to accept and let go of the whining, it is beyond pathetic, it was beyond pathetic a long time ago. Get an education, learn a trade, take up a hobby or something to improve yourself. Who knows, you do well enough maybe theb Jews will invite you to some of their parties.

What, you mean people with inside information that the banks were insolvent pulled their money?? Garsh, you could knock me over with a feather, I am so surprised.  How dare they?   Well, anyone with half a brain would have pulled their money, or anyone who didn't believe constant government reassurance (which is anyone with half a brain).  Cypress has been on financial deathwatch for a year already.

Makes you wonder -- people who pull money out of an "actual" ponzi scheme can have it clawed back in court, at least in some jurisdictions.  But nah, this wasn't an "actual" ponzi.

Come on, really. It wasn't that hard to see the writing on the wall and get your money out as soon as you could out of Cyprus months before all this. The same should be happening now with deposits in Greek and Portuguese banks. Why on earth would you keep your money in a bank associated with either Greece or Portugal. You wouldn't if you had a brain in your head. These people/front companies moving money out of Cyprus is a non-news event people!

Well see you said it yourself, months. I exited the banks years ago, anyone with a brain would do the same. However they didn't exist months or years before did they? No they exited right before the event. So they were really dumb for a long time and suddenly saw the light or do they get the tip off?

Don't be naive, this is cronyism of the worst kind.

The only people I have a problem with here are those who participated in setting the policy for everyone else and then acted to evade the consequences. That equates to treason for me.

But I have a hard time imagining that I would have done anything different if I was a depositor and learned of this plan beforehand. I regard the actions of the EU bureaucrats and their Cypriot government henchmen to be criminal in regard to these events, and would feel no remorse in avoiding the consequences of the criminal behavior of other people, regardless of the words it might be cloaked in.

The inside information that the confiscation was being planned would have been very valuable, and it seems very likely to me that this information was sold to a number of buyers. One more bit of nastiness to go along with the entire tawdry mess.
