Buyers of Snoras bonds file 6.4-million-euro claim to court

A group of investors who bought the bonds and deposit certificates of Snoras, Lithuania’s nationalized commercial bank that currently undergoes bankruptcy procedures, has asked the court to cover their total losses of 22 million litas (EUR 6.4 m) in the first ever claim of such sort filed to the court.

A claim of 283 people against state-owned company Indėlių ir Investicijų Draudimas (Deposit and Investment Insurance), Snoras and Lithuania’s state was filed with the Vilnius Regional Court on 23 April, the law firm Raidla Lejins & Norcous representing the claimants’ interests said in a press release.

According to the statement, most of the claimants are small creditors – people who invested less than 100,000 euros, i.e. less than the maximum insurance payout envisaged in Lithuania’s legislation and the European Union’s (EU) directives in case of a bank’s bankruptcy.

“We think that a refusal to pay insurance payouts to our customers is unfounded and illegal. They were forced to resort to court as the authorities refused to pay insurance payouts in good will,” said Rimantas Šimaitis, partner with Raidla Lejins & Norcous.

He noted that the interpretation and application of the national legal acts governing the deposit and investment insurance by the authorities was irregular and contrary to the EU directives. Moreover, the non-professional customers of SNoras, when buying the bank’s bonds and deposit certificates on the basis of information made available to them, were convinced that those products were equal to other “deposits” and were covered by insurance.

A group of people who have acquired Snoras’ bonds and deposit certificates has approximately 800 members now.

The Vilnius Regional Court decided to open bankruptcy proceedings against Snoras on 7 December last year.
