Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Is it against EU rules to demand that banks operating in the country takes part in the deposit insurance system used in the country? Parex bank (since nationalised) had a presence in Sweden and its local deposits were specifically guaranteed by the Swedish FSA, and I find it hard to believe they got that service for free.
