To me, those two phrases have meant 'certainty' rather than 'safety'. Not sure what's the deposit insurance limit in Cyprus but, if we consider the US, the FDIC insurance limit is US$ 250K, so in the event of a bank going bust, account holders should be contractually prepared to lose 100% of their balance above that figure. Given that they're able to recover 60% of their balance above EUR 100K from banks in Cyprus, aren't they getting more than what they were *contractually* promised? I know the situation is very different *emotionally* but, end of the day, spin doctors might latch on to the contractual standpoint. People lost the bulk of their trust with banks as custodians of their money during the GFC. I doubt if Cyprus makes much too much difference.
