On Friday 8 March, the Standing Parliamentary Committee on Finance will hold a public hearing on the nationalisation of SNS REAAL. DNB will be represented by Jan Sijbrand, Executive Director of Banking Supervision.


Invited representatives will be given the opportunity to introduce themselves and give a brief opinion on the nationalisation plans. Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem has given permission for those attending to put questions to Mr Sijbrand relating to the technical aspects of the rescue operation and to obtain factual information.
