IZHEVSK, January 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The Udmurtia's department of the Russian Savings Bank has opened an inquiry into the fact of confidential documents about the bank customers found scattered on an illegal garbage site in the city of Izhevsk (Udmurtia).
"The bank is conducting its own investigation into the incident; all those responsible will be punished," said spokeswoman for the bank Veronika Riulets. "All the necessary measures will be taken to prevent similar incidents in future," the spokeswoman assured. "The incident is an extraordinary case for the bank," she stressed.
The documents which contained confidential information about the bank customers were found scattered on a garbage site mixed with construction litter in a private sector near a motorway. Local residents said that heaps of litter sprang up there shortly after Christmas holidays.
The confidential documents dating back to 2008- 2012 contained private correspondence between the bank workers, applications for loans and copies of the bank customers’ passports and other confidential information about them.
On Tuesday the bank's technical personnel removed its "litter" from the garbage site.
