GKO Conversions End

MOSCOW -- The Finance Ministry has finalized the conversion of "frozen" GKO T-bills, Interfax reported Monday.

Interfax quoted Bella Zlatkis, the head of the ministry's securities department, as saying the ministry had processed investor applications filed since a government resolution extending the process of converting more than 10 billion rubles ($368 million) worth of GKOs at face value took effect.

The Justice Ministry is registering a government instruction on the opening of investment accounts for investors who have not had their GKOs converted.
