The Central Bank of Solomon Islands (CBSI) condemns the recent damage of a banking facility in Auki, Malaita Province.
The Bank South Pacific (BSP) branch in Auki was reported as vandalized last week, with further clarification by the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF), of what actually happened, including the type of damage the banking office branch had received.
Central Bank understands that this may be an accident or an isolated event, but still fully condemns any sort of destruction made over these types of critical infrastructures.
“CBSI wish to take this opportunity to remind the general public again that these properties must be respected at all times, as they play a very important intermediary role in the country”.
“Our banks and other key financial institutions together with their infrastructures ensure customers use their financial services and products in a safe environment – please respect all banking facilities”.
This reminder follows the recent major destruction over the BSP Ranadi branch in Honiara during the November riots of last year.
