Millions taken by former banker Garcia from Venezuelan banks

GarciaWILLEMSTAD - Former Giro Bank Director Eric Garcia was able to realize the purchase of this former state bank by taking millions of dollars from bankruptcies of banks in Venezuela.

Garcia was the curator of these banks for many years and took these funds unlawfully from these Venezuelan banks to finance a takeover of Girobank. It is about 24 million dollars or more than 43 million guilders. The 24 million dollars now apply as a claim on Giro Holdings.

The public limited company Giro Holdings was declared bankrupt on March 2, 2017. This has now been confirmed by the Court of Appeals. Even now, this does not affect Girobank customers.
