The Military Government announced today that it had permitted two British-owned banks on the West Bank of the Jordan to re-open. They are the British Middle Eastern Bank and the Ottoman Bank with deposits estimated at roughly ten million pounds sterling ($24 million). The re-opening of the banks will permit their clients to claim their deposits or institute legal action if their claims are not satisfied. Jordanian-owned banks on the West Bank remain closed.
