Re your story on ATMs on Maltawinds, the ATM network was down for about 4 minutes due to a required system reboot with no branches having any problems in dealing with customers – would appreciate if you could update your story accordingly.

However, this news portal has copies of atm chits which indicate that the outage lasted from at least 9.15 to 9.30.
All atms were affected by the outage.
Sources who spoke to this news portal also said that the BOV internet banking is also down with transfers having been affected at around 830am have not gone through.
