He added that NBE is currently waiting the final verdict
in a case involving transferring ownership of a hospital in Mohandeseen to a
group of banks that includes NBE, the Egyptian Arab Land Bank (EALB), and the
Arab Banking Corporation (ABC).
The hospital’s loans reached EGP 115 million, with 20%
owed to NBE, 60% to EALB, and the remaining 20% to ABC.
The official said that the economic court had ruled in
favour of the three banks to acquire ownership of the hospital but that they
are waiting for the decision to execute the transfer.
NBE postponed EGP 2 billion in payments from tourist
companies during the last year and a half because of the difficult
circumstances facing the sector since the revolution.
The bank succeeded in arriving at 1800 settlements during
the last year and a half, recovering EGP 6.5 billion.
