The instructor finalizes the pending procedures before finishing the investigations that already extend for a period of five years

MADRID, 11 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The judge of the National Court in charge of the investigation of the 'Popular case' will hear this Wednesday the experts from the Bank of Spain Santiago Ruiz-Clavijo and Pablo Hernández, whom he has summoned in order to ratify the reports they prepared at the request of the own magistrate.

It was last July when the head of the Central Court of Instruction Number 4, José Luis Calama, agreed to call them to court, also enabling the 15th in the event that the declaration of two experts was extended, something foreseeable given the complexity of the documents provided in the case.

The two experts from the Bank of Spain were in charge of expanding a report that they themselves prepared in 2019 in order to determine whether, at the end of 2015, there was a deficit of provisions by Banco Popular and its "importance". " for the entity's annual accounts.

But, in addition, the experts prepared an exhaustive report that focused on Popular's operations that were mediated by Thesan Capital, a venture capital company specializing in the purchase of companies in crisis that operated with the bank between 2011 and 2014.

In it, the experts pointed out that the bank should have classified as "doubtful" and not as normal the operations with the Luxembourg companies of Thesan Capital, and that they led to a deficit of provisions that they estimate at approximately 521 million euros.

In addition to the citation of Ruiz-Clavijo and Hernández, the instructor still has to listen to the other team of experts to whom he has entrusted different reports, including one related to the borrowers of the defunct Banco Popular.

In this case, which has already lasted for five years, the judge investigates the alleged accounting irregularities of Banco Popular in 2016 and the leaks to the press a year later that would have caused its resolution in mid-2017.
