EU Confirms Plan For Cyprus-Style Theft of Bank Deposits

As warned here repeatedly…

G20 Governments All Agreed To Cyprus-Style Theft Of Bank Deposits… In 2010

Federal Reserve Governor Confirms – Bank Depositors Will Be Cyprused

Growing Political Deception On Bank Deposits Theft

The Bankers’ Net Is Closing

Federal Reserve Says Bank Bail-Ins Coming To The USA

… the internationalist banksters’ plan to set up a global regime for “resolution” of failing banks, wherein governments will give themselves free reign to “bail-in” the banks using depositors’ savings, is now slowly but surely being enacted by governments worldwide.

From The Telegraph (UK):

EU makes bank creditors bear losses as Cyprus bail-in becomes blue-print for rescues

New European Union “bail-in” rules to impose the losses of failed banks on shareholders, bondholders and some large depositors were agreed early this morning by Europe’s finance ministers.

…Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the chairman of the Eurogroup of finance ministers, hailed the agreement as a major step towards a “banking union” and away from state funded aid to recapitalise or bailout troubled banks across Europe.

…Greg Clark, the financial secretary to the Treasury, declared that Britain was happy with the new rules after securing concessions allowing governments flexibility on how to tailor bank “resolution” to national circumstances and existing British arrangements on banking levies.

…Under the deal, after 2018 bank shareholders will be first in line for assuming the losses of a failed bank before bondholders and certain large depositors. Insured deposits under £85,000 (€100,000) are exempt and, with specific exemptions, uninsured deposits of individuals and small companies are given preferred status in the bail-in pecking order for taking losses.

It is most important to recall what we have shown previously.

Do not be fooled into believing that, because Australia’s government has “guaranteed” (ie, insured) bank deposits up to $250,000, that this means your savings are safe, and that a failing Aussie bank will not be “bailed-in” using your money.

The government’s “guarantee” is limited, to just $20 billion per failed bank.

That’s less than one-tenth of the total amount of customer deposits — digital bookkeeping entries — actually “held” by Australian banks.

(see The Bank Deposits Guarantee Is No Guarantee At All )

To the best of my knowledge, Australia’s politicians have not yet begun to legislate the new, FSB-mandated and G20-agreed bank “bail-in” regime here.

But when they do, your savings will be exposed to confiscation.

Just as intended:

Earlier on Monday, Bank of England Deputy Governor Paul Tucker said the EU law on bank recovery and resolution would be a milestone towards a global system.
