First International Bank of Grenada (FIB) is dead, long live First Bank of Grenada. And along with it the International Deposit Indemnity Corporation (IDIC) which not only has its website at http://www.idic-ec.org/ functioning (complete with claim forms) but now announces that it has been acquired by a Ugandan corporation. This happens to - more or less - coincide with an announcement by Grenada's Finance Minister about the bank.
