Parliament to probe Poland's central bank

The Polish parliament voted on Friday 24 March to establish a panel to investigate decisions by the National Bank of Poland on foreign takeovers in the financial sector since communism fell.

In a 251-168 vote lawmakers decided to set up the 10-member commission.

The panel would investigate decisions made by the NBP and its regulatory arm, the Banking Supervisory Commission, concerning mergers and takeovers by foreign owners since 1989.
