Nigeria central bank debits Standard Chartered $7.9 mln after moving MTN funds -sources
ABUJA, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Nigeria's central bank has debited
Standard Chartered 2.4 billion naira ($7.86 million) after it
fined the lender for helping South Africa's telecoms firm MTN to
move funds abroad, two sources told Reuters on Thursday.
Standard Chartered, alongside Citibank Stanbic IBTC Bank and
Diamond Bank, was fined last week after the central bank said it
moved a total of $8.1 billion abroad with improper certificates
for telecoms giant MTN.
Standard Chartered has denied any wrongdoing.
