Another big bank barred loans to South Africa

March 30, 1985

Morgan follows a number of other major lenders who have announced recently that they will no longer do business with the minority white government. Morgan's decision apparently also was spurred by a recent New York City ordinance barring city contracts with firms who have dealings with the South African government.
