Credit institutions observe existing legislation on the certification of the identity of their clients and request all necessary documents and data as stipulated by law, Hellenic Bank Association (HBA) general secretary Christos Gortsios underlined in a document forwarded to Parliament on Tuesday, in response to a question by a Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) MP.
LAOS deputy Costas Aivaliotis referred to money transfers outside Greece and the sums the Greek economy loses, especially when it concerns money transfers by illegal migrants in Greece to third countries. 
A response by the Department for the Supervision of Credit and Financial Institutions of the Bank of Greece (BoG) also underlined that the supervision exercised by the Bank of Greece is “continuous and complete”.
