Some 58.51% share of the bank have been transferred from the state’s General Directorate of Foundations to the Treasury and Finance Ministry as of Wednesday, it said.
Following a presidential decree published in the country's Official Gazette last week, the process of the bank's stock register began on behalf of the ministry.
