Venezuela delves into likely fraud against Bandes in the US
The bank's head asked the Attorney General's Office to conduct an investigation
The case involves Bandes' former manager María de los Ángeles González and a US brokerage firm. Porras pointed out an investigation must be conducted as "we may have been victims of embezzlement."
Porras added that the investigation was requested at home although the complaint was filed abroad.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
