It is also alleged that the Bank's former CEO Domingo Parra, paid his paid his former executives Aurelio Izquierdo and Eugenio Calabuig a total of 12 million euros in 'backhanders'.

According to the statement issued by FROB, Parra has participated in a series of operations "of dubious economic rationality" to the detriment of the Banco de Valencia.

Accusations have also been made against Aurelio Izquierdo, who was appointed as the CEO of the Bank to replace Parra in October 2011.

FROB is taking the Executives to the National Court to account for a total of 137 million euros of public money which never found it's way to the Bank's coffers.

What!? 137 million was given to the bank but never actually reach the bank... How on earth can this be possible without some kind of fraud along the way!! When will the public finally see how the system works and realise it isn't just the executives of banks which should stand trial but the politicians also!! Democracy is an illusion created by the rich and powerful to control the weak and poor!
