BoC says moral hazard avoided with new law on sale of loans.

By Stelios Orphanides

"The parliament acted rationally when it took its final decision, and even with some minor problems, a framework was created yesterday which introduces a very usual operation in banking to reduce non-performing loans," Persianis said in an interview to state-radio CyBC on Friday. He did not specify the nature of the minor problems to which he referred.
