TrinidadTobago bill places CUs under central banks control
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (12/13/11)--The Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago has posted on its website a draft of a bill that places all of the country's credit unions under its control.

The bill is based on a proposal approved by the Trinidad Cabinet  in 2009, Carl Hiralal, Trinidad and Tobago inspector of financial institutions, said in a statement to credit unions (The Trinidad Guardian Dec. 10).  

Credit unions have until March 28 to submit their comments on the draft to the Central Bank. Under the proposed legislation, the central bank will assume responsibility for determining the financial soundness of credit unions, supervising credit unions to ensure their compliance with the act, protecting members' deposits and shares from undue loss and ensuring compliance of credit unions with legislation to combat money laundering and terrorist financing.

The proposed legislation allows the central bank or the inspector of financial institutions to have "access to all books, records, accounts, vouchers, minutes of meetings, securities and any other documents, including documents stored in electronic form, of any credit union and the right to call upon any member of the board of a credit union, officer, external auditor or employee of the credit union for any information or explanation the bank considers necessary for the due performance of its duties."
