The Pak Banker - - FRONT PAGE -

The Bank of Ja­pan hasn't found any in­di­ca­tion that some­one at the cen­tral bank leaked in­for­ma­tion about the pol­icy board's de­lib­er­a­tions on neg­a­tive in­ter­est rates, cen­tral bank Gov­er­nor Haruhiko Kuroda told par­lia­ment. Se­nior govern­ment of­fi­cials who were at the meet­ing have also said they didn't pass on con­fi­den­tial in­for­ma­tion, Kuroda said to law­mak­ers on Mon­day. He said the BoJ is con­tin­u­ing its probe into the me­dia re­port -- which sparked sharp moves in fi­nan­cial mar­kets just min­utes be­fore the BoJ's Jan­uary 29 pol­icy an­nounce­ment -- and has not ruled out the pos­si­bil­ity that the story was based on spec­u­la­tion. The cen­tral bank's sur­prise de­ci­sion on neg­a­tive in­ter­est was re­ported by the Nikkei news ser­vice min­utes be­fore it was re­leased.
