Banks chief ‘protected’ execs fled with US$22.0M

Santo Domingo.- National District prosecutor Yenny Berenice Reynoso on Thursday revealed that the Banks Superintendence had prior knowledge of the numerous complaints filed by customers against the executives of the failed bank Banco Peravia, and becomes yet another embarrassment for president Danilo Medina’s scandal-fraught Administration.

Reynoso tweeted that the Banks Superintendence had asked for more time before making public the reportedly 22 complaints filed against Peravia bank president José Luís Santoro and vice president Gabriel Arturo Jimenez Aray, who had left the country the same day the banks regulator proceeded to shut down Peravia’s operations.

For TV SIN news commentator Marino Zapete, the Banks Superintendence “protected those people,” of the Peravia bank, who managed to flee despite the alleged fraud reportedly for more than RD$1.0 billion (US$22.0 million).
