PARIS, May 17 (Itar-Tass) - Societe Generale (SocGen) closely monitors the development of the situation around the Russian unit Rosbank after its board chairman and senior vice-president were detained on Wednesday on suspicion of receiving a bribe.
“Russia is one of the main markets where the company sees a big potential for growth,” said an official statement of SocGen’s leadership, which Itar-Tass received on Thursday.
“Societe Generale closely monitors the situation in its Russian unit in close cooperation with the Russian authorities,” it said. Societe Generale together with Rosbank have ensured a normal functioning of the bank under the interim management of Igor Antonov, and under the supervision of Didier Hauguel, Group Chief Country Officer for Russia at Societe Generale Group and Rosbank’s Chairman of the Board of Directors, the statement said.
