     The suspects were not remained in custody.
 
     An internal inquiry is under way at Trasta Komercbanka to establish all the circumstances of the case. The bank suspended the two employees pending the inquiry.
 
     Trasta Komercbanka has pledged to thoroughly examine all the documents that might be directly or indirectly related to the deal in question and to probe the employees' role.
