The Committee Chair has noted that until now debates are held over the speech, which preceded the incident happened in the NA Session Hall on May 8.

The speaker has noted that many people have fear that the banking secret is not protected, and some circles, making use of it, have created wrong impression.
Babken Tunyan has informed that the amount of everybody’s deposit, the flow of the accounts, and the amount of the loans is a secret, and nobody can have data on the person. He has added that the state bodies and the journalists can get brief data through questions.
The speaker has also noted that any bank can provide information about the quantity of the beneficiaries who have received aid, have deposits without presenting the flow of certain people’s accounts.
“That is a brief information, which is also issued by the Central Bank,” Babken Tunyan noted.
