Angry clients occupy Portuguese bank


People attempting to get their money out of a financially-troubled Portuguese bank have agreed to end a 24-hour occupation of its headquarters.

The clients of the private BPP bank accuse the authorities of not doing enough to help them.

They say innocent people are suffering at the hands of what they call thieves.

Some 60 people converged on the bank yesterday demanding their money, and at least a dozen refused to leave overnight.

The BPP was given an emergency loan of 450 million euros a year ago by a group of banks after the government said it would act as guarantor.
