Rawbank wishes to point out to the public that its internal policy in terms of communication does not consist of reacting to allegations published by certain media and circulating on social networks.
Rawbank en appelle au sens de la responsabilité de tous et invite chacun au respect scrupuleux du secret d’une instruction conduite actuellement par la justice congolaise concernant certains de ses clients.En outre , Rawbank a toujours affirmé par voie de communiqué officiel avoir respectéer la réglementation en vigueur, faire confiance en la justice congolaise et collaborer avec elle en toute transparence.En cette période d’incertitude mondiale liée à la pandémie de COVID-19, notre institution est profondément préoccupée par l’impact au niveau national sur les plans économique et financier mais aussi les conséquences sanitaires et sociales. Nous en profitons donc pour rappeler à notre chère clientèle, qui a toujours témoigné de sa confiance en nous, que nous continuerons à rester engagés à ses côtés comme d’habitude. Rawbank qui appuie le plan de riposte du Gouvernement, par des campagnes de sensibilisation et des dons en matériels, en appelle enfin à la solidarité nationale pour lutter contre la propagation du virus et préserver les populations.
