Prosecutor reveals more warrants in ‘complex’ bank fraud case: EFE
Santo Domingo.- National District prosecutor Yeni Berenice Reynoso on Wednesday said she asked a judge to declare the US$30.0 million Peravia bank fraud and embezzlement case "complex," EFE reports.
She said the case has become complicated from the sheer number of people indicted, including bank president Venezuelan national Jose Luis Santoro, wanted on an international arrest warrant .
Reynoso’s revelation comes one day after National District Permanent Attention judge Suinda Brito issued the arrest warrants against Maria Cristina Santoro Martidonna and Cristina Martidonna, Santoro’s daughter and wife, respectively, in connection with the fraud.
The prosecutor said the warrants issued against the several foreigners have been communicated to Interpol to be carried out.
As to the Dominicans linked to the fraud, Reynoso said "their names will be revealed in due course.”
