'Majority of Cypriots blame banks for the haircut' polls show

By in

A poll has found that the majority of people in Cyprus believe there was no way to avoid the seizure of uninsured deposits that took place four years in the island’s two largest banks, and that depositors who lost money should be reimbursed by them accordingly. It showed that 96% blame the haircut on the banks, 97% on their oversight authority Central Bank of Cyprus, and 91% on parliament. While a surprising 6/10 of respondents surveyed stated that the haircut was “inevitable”.
