Response by Azza Soliman to allegations made by the Ahli United Bank
(unofficial translation of attached Arabic rejoinder)
Ahli United Bank alleges that on 20 November 2016, the Investigation Judge issued a judicial order prohibiting me from disposing of my real estate and monetary assets, and that this decision compelled AUB to freeze all my assets at the Bank. This is a false allegation, as the Investigation Judge merely sent a letter to the Bank, informing it that he has requested the relevant court to issue an order freezing my assets. I have seen said letter as I was filing a police report against the Bank at the Misr al-Gadeeda Police Station.
In fact, the Bank arbitrarily refused to undertake transactions on my account ten days before the date in question, claiming that there was a technical problem relating to its electronic system. The Bank unjustly refused to allow me to cash my private checks…This evidence shows that the Bank’s claims are erroneous and indicate that it was complicit with security agencies against the interest of one of its customers. This shows that the Bank’s actions violated all relevant national and international banking regulations and customs.
