60 more days for former Giro Bank Director

GarciaWILLEMSTAD - Eric Garcia will remain at least another 60 days behind bars while the Public Prosecution (OM) is still investigating his case. His detention has been extended twice before.

The OM has indicated in a press release that the extension is required in the interest of the investigation into embezzlement of millions of dollars and falsifying documents in the bankruptcy of Banco de Maracaibo in 1994.

The main reason for the extension is the investigation. “The judge also took into account the flight risk, danger of collusion and other reasons,” said the OM in their press release.
