    Can you give me any insight on AlWarka Bank. Will they start back trading on the ISX anytime soon?

    Thank you

    AlWarka bank is holding shares in my name that I purchase from 2008 to 2011. I have over $50,000 dollars in my AlWarka bank account. Are there anyway for me to move the shares and money over to your bank to buy more shares?
