Diamond Trust Bank has confirmed that former Bank of Uganda Director in charge of Supervision Justine Bagyenda’s account in the bank contains billions of shillings.

In the notice, DTB revealed that after leaking of Bagyenda’s account details, they carried out an extensive investigation and established that one of their staff was compromised to access her (Bagyenda) accounts in the bank system.

“Confidential details relating to the accounts were leaked to outsiders and apparently used to create grossly distorted allegations about Mrs Bagyenda’s alleged bank account balances.

The bank further disassociated itself from the unprofessional and illegal actions of the staff and those who may have corruptly procured them to carry out the misdeed.

DTB also apologized to Bagyenda for the inconvenience and embarrassment that the incident caused to her.

Apparently, DTB alleges that it has initiated necessary disciplinary proceedings against them and will make a formal criminal complaint.

Last week, Bagyenda shocked the nation when when it was revealed that her bank accounts contained shs20 billion.
