Peravia executives in US$51.6M bank fraud to be charged today
Santo Domingo.- National District prosecutor Yeni Berenice Reynoso is ready charge Peravia Bank’s top executives with fraud of US$51.6 million and conspiracy, and issued a deadline to the Banks Superintendence (BS) to submit its final report.
Local media report that the charges will be filed before a judge early Friday, when Reynoso will request a warrant to arrest several of those involved.
The Justice Ministry investigates the case and its decision includes international warrants to arrest those who fled the country.
Outlet elnacional.com.do, quoting a source close to the investigation, reports that “the prosecutor has now collected all the information but needs the (SB) report, although that’s not going to stop the filing of the charges,” against José Luis Santoro, Gabriel Jiménez, Nelson Serret and other executives of the collapsed bank.
